Sorry if you feel you got a raw deal.  I really have other eggs to fry
right now, rather than fix up the ssh-host-config script, which is just
a curtesy to the users anyway.  That's why I still stand behind what I 
wrote in the first place.

And I'm allergic against the request to do remote debugging in foreign
environments.  That's something I won't do, unless somebody pays for it.
I have a domain environment myself.  I have a domain user called
cyg_server with the required user rights to run sshd, I have a domain
policy which forwards cyg_server's user rights to the client machines
and ssh-host-config works fine for me.

Other than that, the script was originally a help for the normal Joe and
Jane User, not for company admins which should basically know what they
are doing.  If you want ssh-host-config to become a kitchen sink for all
environments, then *you* have to invest time and/or money to get this
done.  I, for one, am not going to put my time into this voluntarily.
