Better that... than having an inherently insecure scp... or at least
make it absolutely clear and rename it to i[nsecure]scp.

If the core functionality of a program (which is here probably the
"secure") is no longer given, then it's IMO better to rather cause
breakage (at least for old clients), than to keep going.
