  Though generally I agree it's a good idea to push stuff like this
upstream, based on the last discussion on this list with one of the
OpenSSH developers, I have to wonder if it's going to do any good in
this case.
  And based on Havoc Pennington's recent response to this thread, if
he's correct, then it's a silly default which should be reverted.  A
security measure which nearly *everybody* will need to disable is no
security measure at all.
