Eh? Are you sure that was a developer?

Anyway, my impression from the 10-or-so years on this mailing list is
that host-based authentication is one of the less commonly used
features of OpenSSH, so I understand if it isn't completely
understood by all developers. (I don't know the details either.
I don't need to.)
