I'm certainly amenable. Really amenable. My amenableness is bordering on

Sounds like Dec. 11th? I'll book us in.

I previously came up with an idea to hack on SSH a bit. I am still keen
to see some finer-grain control in the SSH daemon for deny/allowing
particular authentication mechanisms based on username and originating

I have also been looking into hacking on the dumpcap code in wireshark
to allow remote, authenticated packet captures over SSH. I have had a
bit of an e-mail exchange with Ronnie Sahlberg about this and he is
quite interested in the idea and has given me some pointers to pursue.

There's some ideas from me. But I'll hack on most anything...
