Request for split: ssh[1,2,-nonfree]

Greetz *,

I would like to request that each of the ssh packages (ssh, ssh2,
ssh-nonfree) be split into two packages, client and server. I won't use
the cheap redhat-does-it-that-way argument (grin); but it would make life
easier for (I would guess) more than a few sysadmins, including (of
course) me. I won't detail my quite complex ssh situation, but it involves
2 debian systems, 1 RedHat Beowulf cluster (yum), and a G3 with
NiftyTelnet. Being able to mix-and-match server and client versions (not
to mention making openssh not conflict with ssh2 and -nonfree), or able to
not run a server at all, would be a useful thing, I think.
