Well, it would be possible, but I needed to do openssh-server-udeb
anyway and it seemed logical to do the client at the same time. In order
for openssh-server-udeb to work an OpenSSL .udeb needs to be created,
which will also fulfil openssh-client-udeb's dependency.

If there's consensus that putty-tools-udeb would be better then I can
certainly scrap openssh-client-udeb (I don't want to duplicate .udebs
needlessly), but given that libcrypto-udeb is necessary anyway I'm not
sure I yet buy your argument above.
