OpenSSH traffic accounting ...




There exist patches for OpenSSH that allow it to perform per user traffic
accounting.

Further, new releases increasingly are being met with the "it still
doesn't do per user traffic accounting ?" comment.

( http://it.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=161168&cid=13488466 )

Can someone tell me why this is not implemented ? Is it a philosophical
question, or is it just low priority ? Perhaps the patches just weren't
good ones and nobody wants to redo them ?

All comments appreciated.
