	option causes lsh to fork off a few extra processes to handle
	its stdio file descriptors, and avoid setting them in
	nonblocking mode. One can also use for instance
	--cvs-workaround=o to fork only for stdout; the optional
	argument can be any combination of the characters 'i' (stdin),
	'o' (stdout) and 'e' (stderr). If this turns out to be useful,
	the option will probably be renamed and perhaps made the
	default.

	Implemented window change messages in the client.

	Generally nicer options and help mesasges, thanks to argp.

     (params
       (private object io_write_file_info)
       (public object io_write_file_info))
     
     (lambda (backend)
       (let ((key (read (stdin backend))))

                ; FIXME: Add encryption here
                (canonical (open backend private) key))))))
	
	The sexptest program has been renamed to sexp_conv. It reads
	an sexp (for now, only canonical and transport syntax are
	supported) on stdin, and prints it using advanced, transport
	or canonical syntax. More features could be added.

	The --debug option now dumps both sent and received packets,
	and it includes a human readable name of the packet type.
	Packets of type SSH_MSG_USERAUTH_REQUEST are suppressed,
	however, because they typically contains user passwords.

	There is one known bug: Running without pty allocation (lsh
	-nt) doesn't work, at least not for me.

	By default, if we are running with a pty, use the same fd for
	stdout and stderr. This workaround should make lsh more
	friendly to bash and other programs that expect stderr to be a

NEWS for the 1998-12-21 snapshot:

Moved most objects in crypto.c and abstract_crypto.c into separate
files.

Added a workaround for Datafellows ssh2 client, which (contrary to the
specification) asks for protocol version 1.99.

Use /dev/urandom, if available.

Collect most object files into liblsh.a.

Started on a key generation program.

TASKLIST and NOTES files now included in the snapshot.

NEWS since the 1998-12-11 snapshot:

A resource mechanism (resource.[ch]) used by the server to cleanup
properly when a connection dies unexpectedly. Can be used to kill
child processes, close files and ports, etc.

Generic code for chaining ciphers (crypto_cbc()) and piping them
together (crypto_cascade()).

Some untested support for blowfish and 3DES. A -c command line option
is needed.
