Took a half day and worked on making it simpler to set up ssh remotes. The complexity I've gotten rid of is there's no need to take any action to get a ssh remote initialized as a git-annex repository. Where before, either git-annex init needed to be ran on the remote, or a git-annex branch manually pushed to it, now the remote can simply be added and git annex sync will do the rest. This needed git-annex-shell changes, so will only work once servers are upgraded to use a newer version of git-annex.
