           Summary: StrictHostKeyChecking really needs a 4th option
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.3p2
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: tom.horsley at ccur.com

I'd love to have something like an "update-anyway" option for
StrictHostKeyChecking that is like "ask", but if the key has changed
gives you the option of going ahead and replacing the old host key
with the new one.

Folks are constantly re-genning test systems around here and never
bother to save and restore the keys in /etc/ssh, so I'm constantly
forced to manually edit my known_hosts file. It would simplify things
if I could just tell ssh to go ahead and edit it for me.
