so defer those two to a later stage?

I don't see any legal consequences in an <exec>-layer over invoking
ssh. If you can legally invoke ssh, scp whatever from the command
line, you can do so from Ant I bet.

Any legal problems with OpenSSH? License is BSD and they didn't use
any code from the commercial SSH stuff - not that I'd want to
reimplement everything in Java.
