OK.  I'm tired of arguing.  The next version of bash will not do anything
to the SSH_CLIENT or SSH2_CLIENT variables.

Since this now exposes the problem that the un-export attempted to solve,
bash will not try to figure out whether it's being run by sshd at all,
and will not source any startup files if it is.

Anything that users want to do will have to be done with ~/.ssh/environment
or ~/.ssh/rc.

There will be a define in config-top.h to enable the source-bashrc code,
so people who really want it can get it with a rebuild, but it will not
be enabled by default.
