Seems fair enough to me.

I've been meaning to do some maintenance on ssh-copy-id for quite a
while, so thanks for the nudge -- that's what parenthood does for
available spare time ;-)

BTW I've just pushed this fix to my git repo:

hopefully that can be in the next OpenSSH release -- I'll endeavour to
deal with some of the rest of the bug backlog in the next day or two.

Cheers, Phil.
