My company went out of the way to add the "none" support to ssh. And I'm seeing
postings on comp.security.ssh where several people have asked for this feature.
So why is there a resistance to support the "none" cipher ?

I've given a valid reason too - I don't want to increase overhead with encryption
(specially over a VPN channel that itself does encryption) - I'm using ssh to
compress the data being sent to the X server. Even so, the responsiveness of the
X server is not too good. It'll help if  openssh were to provide an unencrypted
