Bug#339978: ssh: upgrades from sarge stop due to conffile changes

Package: ssh
Version: 1:4.2p1-5

When testing upgrades of blacs-test-common from sarge to etch I ran into
trouble with ssh:

  Setting up openssh-client (4.2p1-5) ...

  Configuration file `/etc/ssh/ssh_config'
   ==> File on system created by you or by a script.
   ==> File also in package provided by package maintainer.
     What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
      Y or I  : install the package maintainer's version
      N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
        D     : show the differences between the versions
        Z     : background this process to examine the situation
   The default action is to keep your current version.

Note that since this was all done without touching any conffiles, it
would seem that a smooth upgrade from sarge isn't currently possible.
Would it be possible to twiddle things around in ways that make it
possible, at least for people who haven't touch their ssh conffiles?

Do, or do not. There is no angst.
