Bad idea. 1.2.27 has been the only secure shell implementation (along with
the newer versions) that was capable of running a backup through an
ssh connection. It's a matter of stability...

We'll have to focus on openssh, though. Maybe, in future releases of the
SuSE-distribution, there will be the official ssh version from f-secure
included (it almost was in 7.1, but I didn't get the written agreement
from the finland folks).
