If that's the case, then I'd remove PrintMotd also,
for consistency. Currently, I'm thinking that the
most logical thing to do would be to add a PrintLastlog
next to PrintMotd, and make their default value depend
on whether PAM is in or not. That way everyone won't have
to turn it off; it will be off -- but if someone wants to
take pam_lastlog away, then ssh can still do it also.

I have not even made any NMU yet; I spent a full day
cataloging the SSH bugs to see what's worth fixing and
what's already fixed. But I will try to do the right
