I agreed that point but it might be a hard work to do. That is because
OpenSSL in OpenBSD is now 0.9.7j, which doesn't support Camellia.
However, I will try to port Camellia block cipher to OpenSSL and OpenSSH
I think it is compatible since there is Camellia source code distributed
under BSDL and FreeBSD-current has Camellia library inside OS kernel for
