My primary problem with the libssh2 ones is that we don't have any special
markers or anything for SSH-empowered builds on the dl page today. I've
introduced such a field in the actual database of all downloads, but only a
small percentage have the info filled in, and I need to make the script that
generate the web page to include the info somehow. If we don't, there won't be
any noticable difference between links to packages with or without SSH powers.

Removed. Thanks!

Unfortunately not. He's blocking my probes, so if I change user-agent I can
get through. I've now changed the user-agent of my probing to use a dedicated
string for the probes ("Mozilla/ dl-package-check-probe") and it
seems to work and shoud also be nice for other sites to see when my automated
probes run.
