[Mono-list] disaster recovery when using data protection keypairs

I'm interested in using the data protection features in mono 2.4.  When using
the user key store, I see that an xml key file gets created (e.g.
[1][99999999-eeee-ffff-aaaa-111111111111][-1].xml).  What are the conditions
under which such a key file can be used on another machine?  Is it possible?

Let's say that I encrypt some data and store it in an external database, and
I back-up the XML key file.  Then the machine has a hard drive crash, or is
stolen.  How can I recover the encrypted data stored in the external
database?  Thanks in advance for any help, including links to documentation.
