I've seen the module, and tried to make use of it personally, but LSH
feels unfinished when you've used OpenSSH for years. For example the way
lsh suggests you to replicate 'scp' of OpenSSH.

I only know of a handful of hosters who deal with SSH keys directly, so
I don't know how common this case is.
Nevertheless I think many people would appreciate if this were added to
Guix 'canon'.
