Speaking as someone who uses slow-by-modern-standards systems
routinely, the biggest win for Internet-exposed systems is likely to be
connection sharing; for non-exposed systems, using key sizes now
considered tiny.

Back when I was building my own ssh implementation, OpenSSH supported
connection sharing mediocrely as a server (it mostly worked but was a
bit crippled) and just about not at all as a client.  It's improved at
least a little since then (the server support is less crippled), but,
since I don't use OpenSSH in general, I don't know how much beyond that

Might be worth looking at, though.
