itojun isn't talking about openssh here, but about an independant, written
from scratch ssh implementation, which isn't yet available to public (from
what I've heard the authors don't want to make it public until all the features
we can wait from a ssh are implemented).

From what I can see in the sources openssh is derived from ssh-1.2.12.
