the patch deleting obsolete algorithms
also kills it:

	char	*ealgs = "rc4_256 sha1";

so unnice, we killed it twice.

I took a bit of time to look at this; it looks like
it'd be a small patch to use devssl or devtls. maybe
it's time to tell people that they need to apply a
patch?

echoline has been messing around with porting dp9ik,
to 9legacy -- maybe that's another option?

not sure if there are really other options long term
p9sk1/cpu auth is getting moldy and worm-eaten, and
requiring us to keep around code that should really
be dead.
