[Ovmsdev] How to reset the sshd server key?

I was configuring a new module and I must have fat-fingered the zip pw
for config backup (reminder to self: always leave it empty so the module
pw is used). I wanted the new module to have a different sshd server key
but couldn't figure out how to do it. I tried things like:
config rm ssh.server key
but couldn't get "config list ssh.info" to change. Is there a way to do
it? If not, is it hard to add?
I got around this painfully:
- backup current config
- module factory reset
- follow the setup process, sshd server key generated along the way
- backup the new config
- unpack the original and new configs
- copy ssh.info and ssh.server from the old to the new config
- zip it, copy back to module, and restore
Prior to this method-of-last-resort I tried "config list ssh.server
0A132..." but the ssh interface truncates the ~2K string of hex digits.
