Actually, on 2nd thoughts, this makes sense.
sshd is unusable by default since you have to set a password for the
olpc user on the commandline.
Enabling the service could just be another commandline step that you
have to perform.

However, a better way to achieve this is to do it via kickstart's
services command. Could you send another patch that disables it like
that?

Thanks,
Daniel
