When the openssh package is installed, it's not possible to install the ssh-package, because it's blocked.
However if the ssh-package is installed, openssh doesn't care about it and just installs its own binaries.
The openssh ebuild should check if there is already another ssh client installed.
Well, I just don't get what the purpose of openssh flag in net-misc/ssh...
maybe you should try reading the USE flag description
$ quse -D openssh
local:openssh:net-misc/ssh: Allow ssh and openssh to be installed side by side
i dont really feel like fixing this ... cant we just punt net-misc/ssh already ?

Well, I did, but why would one want both installed at the same time... hmmmm. :) Anyway, Humpback has already sent last rites to -dev, so I'd say no action left for base-system here. Thanks.
