By default the ssh port has disabled rsh.

The reasoning was because rsh is insecure thus even falling back to it
is insecure.

However, I'm thinking that functionality is useful to some people so if they
wish to 'do their own thing' and change the default via something such as
USE_RSH=YES mechanism like USA_RESIDENT=YES, ETCDIR=/etc/ssh, etc, .. that
should be ok, right?


Or does rsh need to be enabled by default? .. I'd prefer not but let's hear
some rationale!
