Thank you for the responses.  I was initially attempting to set this value
via the web UI and if I entered anything other than the hash value of the
user's public key it would get rejected.  After thinking about your
response I realize that I really need to determine a method of doing this
via a HBAC rule.  If I accomplish this with authorized_keys then the user
is restricted across the board and would not be able to gain a shell on any
system whereas HBAC would allow me to restrict thier access as needed.  We
currently require users to tunnel over SSH to gain access to certain
sensitive web apps (like Nessus) but those same users have shell access on
a few boxes.  Thoughts??
