Thanks for the patch, but I'm afraid I agree with Arnout and Yann. The
difference between this option and the others is that there's a runtime
command line option to set the port (-p), whereas that isn't the case
for the others.

Please have a look at changing this with a post build script instead. If
we want to do something to make it a bit easier, then we could change
the init script to source /etc/default/dropbear if available and let if
define E.G. ARGS that we could add to the start-stop-command invocation
-E.G. how we do in S81named for the bind package.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
