OpenSSH's message when you don't have a host key could be a little
more informative though.
$ ssh allium
Warning: Permanently added '220.127.116.11' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
Other ssh clients show you the host's key signature and give you
a chance to accept or reject it -- OpenSSH just lets you set
StrictHostKeyChecking or not.
