I'm working at the moment in unifying a number of disparate versions of 
the key exchange patch set into a unified code base, and then seperating 
the code out into functional sets.

Once that work is complete, I plan on presenting a minimal 
implementation of key exchange to the OpenSSH folks again. At this 
point, it would be really useful if a number of people from the Kerberos 
community would be prepared to perform code reviews on the changes. 
Hopefully the I-D describing key exchange will be in, or past, last call 
by this point too.

I'll keep you all posted.
