Overall, the reception to making OpenSSH less susceptible to this kind of analysis was positive.

It was? When last I checked the thread logs on Kerneltrap, the general sense I saw was that most of the OpenSSH and OpenBSD folks were unconcerned to the point of hostility to the idea of preventing this kind of attack. Has that changed in the last day or so?

One thing I have noticed is that the types of hostility that OpenXXX people have can be interpreted to the amount of support they have towards an idea. And while they attract an audience that likes to add in on the hostility, you have to know who the key people are and what flames they are emitting to see which way things go. I think if Damien Miller is saying that it needs to be looked at.. then it will probably be done.
