Thinking about that, doesn't a gnutls_datum_t suffice?  Then you don't
need the import/export functions at all.  Possibly the
allocate+randomize function could also be merged into one API:

  int gnutls_session_ticket_key_generate (gnutls_datum_t *key);

The function would allocate and randomize key->data and set key->size
accordingly.  The key->data field needs to be released using gnutls_free
as usual.
