storeKeyPublic calculates the store key of a public object. It's sister is

storeKeyText simply renders a store key as text, allowing it to be printed.

Every object Squid deals with must have a key, including private
non-cacheable objects. A new object starts out using a unique private key
(storeKeyPrivate), and only when it is known the object is cacheable the key
is changed to the public key to allow other requests to find the object.
