Hey Matt,

  thanks a lot for your detailed and very helpful responces! I must admit 
Ive never come across the ssh force command option
before and with this suddenly I feel much more comfortable with the 
solution! Probably that will work well for me, tho I'd like
to understand the other part of your answer:

I don't really get what you mean, if another user accepts the ssh logins 
then I need to have an authorized_keys for them??
So theres not an advantage, hence I dont think Im understanding u 
properly... Can you elaborate a little pls??

thanks alot! Andy.
