Your OpenSSL notes make sense to me. I've incorporated it more or
less into the hint. I did a lot of rephrasing, but essentially,
it is what you suggested.

Yeah, that's what you get when you copy&paste from above... ;-)

I fully agree on a) and c), but b) is not as bad as you describe
(but not perfect either). There -is- a symlink. But there is a
copy as well. So it's just twice as much space, not 3 times, at
least in the install I've got.

Your fix corrects it all. Thanks a lot for those improvements!

OpenSSH hint v1.1 should be commited soon. Changes are your
improvements, plus quite a few other typos corrected, and a minor
change to the random devices script, and some rephrasing and/or
additional info here and there.
