Currently, ndnsec export command can only export the default key of an identity.

Since multiple keys can associate with an identity, it's useful to be able to export non-default keys without first making them default.

To realize this feature, ndnsec export should accept an optional -k flag, to interpret the name as a key name instead of an identity name.
This design is consistent with ndnsec cert-dump command.

Usage: ndnsec export [-h] [-o FILE] [-P PASSPHRASE] [-i|-k] NAME
  -h [ --help ]            produce help message
  -i [ --identity ] arg    interpret NAME as an identity name, this is the default
  -k [ --key ] arg         interpret NAME as a key name
  -o [ --output ] arg (=-) output file, '-' for stdout (the default)
  -P [ --password ] arg    passphrase, will prompt if empty or not specified

There was a TODO:

TODO: export all certificates, selected key pair, selected certificate

I have implemented "selected key pair" and "selected certificate" options in this Change.
For "all certificates", it involves changing the SafeBag format, and is separated to #5111.
