This really isn't a good argument for being gratuitously incompatible
with SSH on every other platform.  At least not until we have
/etc/hosts.conf, /etc/fstab.conf, /etc/shells.conf,
/etc/mail/sendmail.conf, /etc/ttys.conf.  And worse: /etc/lpd.conf,
/etc/tip.conf, etc.  And I hope to never see the day when any of that

entropy -- it's not just a good idea, it's the second law.
