SSH is a big an cumbersome thing, though SSH-1 would likely be doable
with Blowfish and some public-key cipher (RSA would be a bit ugly but
doable I guess). However the truth of the matter is that to me SSH is
not very useful to me without a good VT100 terminal application to take
advantage of it. I contacted ScrawlSoft about the possibility of
opening the source to PT100 so I could consider adding SSH support along
with a host of bug fixes, and they said no, but if I wrote SSH support
as a separate module they'd "consider adding it". I don't do projects
without a reasonable expectation of positive outcome.
