I still think we need a patched openssh, as we want to have local
per-user files as well as to synchronized ones (in other words, I
totally hate how alioth overwrites my .ssh-files) - but the patch gets
smaller, which is good news.
BTW, I'm not sure that we actually need a chown if we can tell ssh "if
it is owned by root, it is ok as well", which is fair for the first step
