[erlang-questions] ssh password protected private keys

There is a solution for password protected private keys in the
public_key application (used by new ssl).
The plan is that the erlang ssh application should be rewritten to use
public_key too. If you would
like to speed up that implementation you are welcome to submit a patch
for that rewrite as there are currently some other
things higher on our priority list.
