    ... and what that doesn't mention is that it also works on your
    entire known_hosts file: `ssh-keygen -l -f ~/.ssh/known_hosts'
    should give you the fingerprint of every key stored in it, with the
    host name listed alongside. Handy, but would have been handier if
    I'd found it out _before_ writing a shell script to do the same
    thing :-)
