Fingerprint visualisation in is currently disabled by default, as the
algorithm used to generate the random art is still subject to change.

Maybe it's childish, but I for one would love the randomart algo to, at least optionally, include colors and a better character selection. Don't know how hard it would be to push such a patch through, though.

VisualHostKey
If this flag is set to ``yes'', an ASCII art representation of
the remote host key fingerprint is printed in addition to the hex
fingerprint string at login and for unknown host keys. If this
flag is set to ``no'', no fingerprint strings are printed at
login and only the hex fingerprint string will be printed for
unknown host keys. The default is ``no''.
