[Bug 1188610] Re: sshd_config is modified/replaced

note, if a future version of ssh package has a modified sshd_config file
(possibly a new setting being added, or one being changed), and the user
does 'apt-get upgrade', they will then be prompted on what to do because
the package system notices a change to this file.  prompts on 'apt-get
upgrade' are generally not desireable as people mostly expect these
things to work unattended, and in this case the user didn't do anything
themselves to justify this.

Also note, and I could be wrong, that Ubuntu's stock sshd_config has 'TCPKeepAlive yes' as the default value.  It would seem that this should be enough to keep the session alive?
