------- Additional Comments From cdmclain at ll.mit.edu  2005-06-03 23:38 -------
In case b (and the SSH forwarding example), without the change, the "real" host
name is "localhost". HostKeyAlias is used for looking up the key in the HostKey
database (aka the known_hosts file) and thus should also be used for the prompt.
In case b, HostKeyAlias provides not only more information than the "real"
hostname but the correct information.

Please reconsider your decision.
