The openssh package that's currently on riscos.info tries to use keys from 
a /ssh folder in Choices. I say "tries" because it looks like some 
filename translation issues stop it from working properly.

This was on a system without UnixHome installed - possibly it works a bit 
better if that's present (ISTR that an older version of ssh did use 

Regardless, Choices:/ssh seems like a reasonable place to me for storing 
SSH keys.
