This is actually a good question, and one to which I couldn't find an
easy answer. As far as I can tell, the solution is not to rely on the
SSH client directly; instead, one needs to use ssh-keyscan with the type
ssh-keyscan -t dsa <hostname>
In other words, RSA is the default, and you have to do some work to use
DSA instead. I'm not sure this is a bad thing, mind you, but it wasn't
intuitive for me, either.
