... although bug #54243 was downgraded important->wishlist, (open)ssh
still conflicts with ssh2. Removal of ssh-nonfree means that one will
not be able to have a potato box support both ssh1 and ssh2. Very bad,
I'd like to help, but could some kind soul tell my /why/ openssh and
ssh2 conflict in the first place?
