It's really not a huge hassle. I've already done it. I configured the
.ssh/config files where I needed to, and it doesn't conflict with any
other keys I have. I don't get what the big deal is. The disruption is,
like, five minutes of work. The potential benefit is unknown, but
certainly not zero.
Why wait for a breach to do this? This is a perfect time. Doing it
after the 2008 breach was wise. This is better.
