The app should not need to know.  cp ssh rcp and rsh host1 should work
like rsh with ssh benefits.  Change the conf files on the machines so
that hosts.equiv is honored.

Getting the host keys distributed should not be so bad.  It can probably
be done manually beforehand.  Even better it can probably be scripted.

I am assuming that pvm3 is using the external rsh program and not some
internal implementation.
