This is true.  I think there may already be a bug report for this.  It's a
little bit difficult to do because of the layering inside bzrlib, but it's a
reasonable request.

On the other hand, it's not hard to generate a second SSH keypair and register
it with your Launchpad account.  That's what I'd do in this situation.

You can also delete the launchpad_username line from your bazaar.conf, which
should make lp: URLs resolve to HTTP rather than bzr+ssh automatically; i.e. if
you don't have an SSH key on a machine, don't use "bzr launchpad-login".
