    Simply storing the first hostname used in a dot file for subsequent
    reuse on client side,
    would be even easier I guess. That would be basically the same strategy
    as used by
    ssh with regard to host keys. It wouldn't even perhaps make protocol
    changes necessary.
    But still not a perfect solution... (Remember the times you have delete
    something from
    .ssh/known_hosts).
