I looked at rssh briefly yesterday when someone suggested it.  Had I
known of it before we started down this road then we might have used
it instead.  However, at the moment we seem to have a working
solution and so we will stick with that for now.

I am not sure what effect disabling SELinux support in SSH actually
has from a security standpoint.  So, if anyone cares to enlighten me
on the the consequences I would like to know.
