er.. I'm not so sure. That seems like it'll make /rescue a lot bigger.
Keep in mind that everything in there is statically linked, so including
ssh pulls in not only the ssh binary (>200k, and another 250k if you include
sshd), but also the libraries it's linked against. (e.g. libcrypto)
/rescue is less that 3M right now.
