Well, to make sure the service is up, really. I wanna make sure that a
user can actually log in, ideally. We're using a system to chroot sftp
users into their accounts, and if I can test to that point, that would
be ideal, as certain upgrades to openssh-chroot don't work, as in, user
can connect and log in, but never gets the sftp connection, or even
can't log in, but ssh is up and you can ssh in normally to a non-sftp
only account. A health check that logs in would make sure the system is
working as intended.

As long as I know it's possible, I'll find the time to figure it out.
I'll learn better that way. I'm sure you know how it is ;)
