           Summary: Support multiple blowfish key lengths
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.6p1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Miscellaneous
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: jimis at mailinator.com

Blowfish is a very secure and fast block cipher. By design it supports
key lengths of anywhere from 32 bits to 448 bits. Currently OpenSSH
implements only 128 bits.

So the feature request is: Implement the use of more key lenghts,
including the minimum of 32 bits (for speed) and the maximum of 448
bits (for extreme cases).
