The ssh server should optimally generate new keys every so often (every few
hours?)

This generally takes a lot of CPU time, and on a 2501 it would probably take
quite a while!!!

Also, the ssh server requires more memory then a telnet server.  This is a
problem for older routers.

While I'm at it, I believe Cisco is/will be using the OpenSSH code for newer
implementations of ssh under IOS.
