First I'll give you the description:
Description: Fast remote command execution over rsh/ssh/lsh
The problem: logging in to a remote system with a cryptographic
solution such as lsh or ssh takes time, due to the computationally
expensive key exchanges that occur when the connection is established.
It is common to trigger a lot of remot logins while using remote CVS,
which makes it painfully slow compared to having the repository
The solution: reuse the secure tunnel once it has been established.
fsh is a drop-in rsh-compatible replacement for ssh that automatically
resuses ssh tunnels.
The trouble with fsh is that it does not depend on
ssh (or lsh), but can use just plain rsh too. But
it is nearly of no value then, as the rsh authentication
method does not have a slow startup.
But I would really dislike seeing it only suggest
lsh (psst) or ssh, as it was designed entirely for these
What do you suggest I do?

Oh, bind is extra? Why? Oh well, I'll drop the priority
on the next upload.
