This would certainly be preferable. I definitely don't want to make
openssh-server Priority: standard, as there are many people who are
sensitive about what's in the standard installation and (rightly, IMO)
don't want another thing that listens on a network port added to it
since that's a security exposure that not everyone wants or needs.

openssh-client and openssh-server were split in part to allow
openssh-server *not* to be in the standard installation.
