My first knee-jerk reaction to your initial mail was the same as
Serge's -- I think it would be absolutely straightforward to enable
ssh server by default by enabling this task, and it remains a
conscious decision by the user.

However, I'm a bit confused by your answer -- are you saying that the
"ssh" task is enough to accomplish this, or that you don't consider
that good enough?
