I recently discovered a really nice feature where trying to connect to a new server using ssh/scp will display a GTK+ popup, asking you to confirm the identity if there’s no stdin (for example, when running ssh/scp as part of a custom command in MonoDevelop).

Features like these make me really happy, because it means that someone actually thought this through. So I answered the question (only 2 answers are valid), and couldn’t help but smile at what I saw.
SSH secret answer

No one will ever guess which answer I picked!
