Patch 2

I first posted a first version patch to the openssh-unix-dev mailing
list (04/07/11 09:12) before realizing that Bugzilla would be the
better place for it.
Markus Friedl then answered with the patch Damian Miller attached.
I used that patch as inspiration to simplify mine. I just gave another
look and there was still room for improvement, so I have now another

The main difference between them is that mine supports also ssh1.
Then we disagree if the option -v (verify) or -T (test) should be used.

I would be happy with either of those two patches as I do not need ssh1
support. I just added it for the sake of completeness and in the hope
that it will ease the patch's acceptance...

Is there any support I can give for getting that feature upstream?
