Yea, thanks a lot...  Any hams that want to use SSH for
authentication over the air but not encryption of the data cannot do
so, whereas we used to be able to with earlier versions of some SSH
or other.  Legal requirements from the FCC prevent us from using any
codes or ciphers for actual data transfer over the airwaves, but we
are allowed to do authentication.

Curt, one of those hams that'd like to be able to use SSH again over
ham radio TCP/IP.
