ok, yes, but there's a major difference: in general the user's ssh key
is not accessible directly via the net; the ssh login password is.
if i want to use paul's key to break into server target.com.ie i have to
go find paul's key. where is that? and once i figure out that it's on
laptop x that is usually behind a firewall, how do i get to it?
in my mind that's a big win.
