Hmm... Since I am using Debian I had not noticed. :-)
Looking at the older openssh-3.4 sources I find no mention of either
option. But in the Debian patch for 3.4 in woody adds the
ProtocolKeepAlives option. So it looks like it was originally
implemented as a Debian patch. Later this shows up in openssh-3.8
sources as ServerAliveInterval. The Debian patch for 3.8 says
ProtocolKeepAlives is documented as remaining for compatibility.
I will be changing my config files to use the new upstream
ServerAliveInterval option. We can let ProtocolKeepAlives disappear
into the changelogs of history.
