summary: Bubble-babble encoding for host keys
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

Perhaps we should display the "bubble-babble" encoding for host key fingerprints, as well as the hexadecimal one, since several other implementations support it.

Bubble-babble is specified in an expired Internet-Draft (draft-huima-babble-01), archived on the IETF SECSH mailing list. There are various implementations around, such as Digest::BubbleBabble.pm.

Should we display both formats always, or let it be configurable? If the latter, per-session, or global? (See also ssh-fingerprint-formats.)
