In reply to: SSH? by Duncan
Parent article: Sarge is coming

Then why bundle telnet by default? I don't see these as "remote desktop
functionality" but simple network clients. I could see an argument about
security but it would be simple and transparent for most users if ssh were
not suid by default -- I don't know if that's how Debian ships it. (The
suid part is only needed to emulate rsh... my opinion is that it should just
execute rsh in that case).
