I like the idea of having -ssh and -scp subpackages for dropbear,
however, correct me if I am wrong but the `/usr/bin/ssh` is just a
symlink to dropbear multi (so is `/usr/bin/scp`) does it really make
sense to have subpackages for symlinks? Wouldn't it make more sense to
not use the multicall binary if we want to split this package into
multiple subpackages?
