Yeah, but that's not a fault of the script but of the shell.  Nothing
I can do about in the script.  Except if I require the script to run
under bash instead of sh, to allow readline support.

Would that be acceptable?  I have attached a new version of ssh-host-config
to this mail, which requires bash now.  If that's not ok, it's easy to
revert again.

I've also attached the two vanilla files ssh_config and sshd_config to
put into /etc/defaults/etc. This should simplify testing.

Changed in this version of ssh-host-config:

- Require bash.
- Remove annoying backslashes when echoing a bang (!).
- Allow /var/log/lastlog to be a directory (But that can again create
  problems with permissions, Pierre!)

Please don't forget to test ssh-user-config, too.  Thanks.

You know, PGA and PTC.  See wtf ;-)
