Hey, you *are* helpful.  By testing the test release, by reporting
problems and bugs, by helping with the documentation and last but not
least by being a part of the community on this list discussing stuff
and helping others.

But no good deed goes unpunished, so...

... would you mind to test a new incarnation of ssh-user-config which I
plan to use in a bugfix-release of OpenSSH 6.7p1 and to push upstream. :}

The script is attached to this mail.
