Tangent: has any consideration been given to increasing the maximum
allowed beyond 8192 bits (which is below the current NIST
recommendation for 256 bits of security)?  Last time I looked OpenSSL
supported 10k bits out of the box so it probably wouldn't be hard to
support that in OpenSSH.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
