Hmm. Why do I get this stupid message when I log into certain servers:
Warning: Server lies about size of server host key: actual size is 1023
bits vs. announced 1024.
Warning: This may be due to an old implementation of ssh.

Not very backward-compatible, is it? In some environments it's desirable
to have the software behave the same on every platform; even if it's
buggy, the bugs need to be consistent. The behavior of openssh is *not*
100% identical to the behavior of ssh. Until it is, there's a place for
both. (I was also less than amused when the location of the config files
in ssh moved to ssh-nonfree. What was the point of that gratuitous
