Public bug reported:

It's a usability problem that openss-client behaves differently the
first time you connect to a host, particularly if you hop between client
machines all the time and might or might not have connected from that
particular client before. It would be an improvement if it would just
silently add new hosts without asking. (I don't understand why it has to
ask, anyway.)

This silly question also dilutes the usefulness of the question about
what to do when a known_hosts key has changed, which is important and
has far-reaching security consequences.
