At one point I tried to build a 'special' statically
linked ssh... an effort that didn't work out... with
the idea of having it available on some port as an
emergency backdoor for sysadmins that came up as
soon as networking was up. The idea was that if things
went bad and you were 4000 miles away from the data

Just another of those things that I might have done,
if I lived on a planet with 48 hours days.
