Too much QA (or any external QA) imposed on the development make it 
slower. Compare Linux v. OpenSolaris kernel development. Fedora tries to 
be very fast developing distro, thus less QA in the development version.

Of course, noone wants to break Rawhide, and as I know ssh maintainer he 
did his testing, but things happen and this slipped through.

Given the fast Rawhide development, I believe it will be fixed soon. In 
meantime, Rawhide eats babies! Yours!
