Carelessness in investigating (looked at
http://packages.qa.debian.org/libp/libpam-ssh.html, noticed that the last news
entry was removal from testing and did not read closely enough to notice the
unstable removal notice below it - in retrospect, I should have expected such a
pattern, as removals from testing are often preceded by removals from
unstable).

Sorry for the noise.

On my side, I got fooled by reading too fast:
http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=libpam-ssh&searchon=names&suite=all&section=all

The package is in SID, but only on few arch.

Which makes me wonder: WHY ? How does such things happen?
Is this because such ports aren't part of official Debian anymore?

Well, by putting the SSH private key on a removable media one can get a
poor-man's version smart card, similar with libpam-rsa, but you get the
added benefit of having the key automatically added to the ssh-agent.

Kind regards,
Andrei
