I thought I saw a patch or feature for an sshd for blocking max

Or do any less popular open source SSH servers provide that? (Keep counter
of connections, attempts, failures per client?)

There are a number of perl scripts and what not that will tail your
secure.log and record failed logins and other connection information.

A number of them will also use iptables to block attacking IP's, which
is most useful. :]

You could always hack up a perl script to record that information for
you, I haven't heard or see of any readily available solution floating
around....
