Thanks.  I'll check those out.

It seems so, although I've never seen one.  From "man sources.list"...

       ssh    The  rsh/ssh  method method invokes rsh/ssh to con­
              nect to a remote host as a given  user  and  access
              the  files. No password authentication is possible,
              prior arrangements with RSA  keys  or  rhosts  must
              have been made.  Access to files on the remote uses
              standard find and dd commands to perform  the  file
              transfers from the remote.
