I replied to the head of this thread with a few points, but I'd like to
touch on this other one here.

What about attempting connection to the server as anonymous by default,
and then, if connection fails, asking the user name. Or: Include a
"anonymous" checkbox, before the username/password combo, that
disables the username/password fields.

This doesn't really help in the other situations my previous post
mentioned though: host keys and other single sign-on situations.
