I dropped setting the ssh settings in the installer because it would
overwrite whatever the user changed there. Also, just specifying the
path to the ssh client isn't enough, you have to provide additional
params to TortoisePlink (or whatever client you use) to make it work,
e.g. the username and password. So just setting the ssh client wouldn't
work anyway.

There's a FAQ entry about the error message which shows up if the ssh
client isn't specified, so I guess there's not much we can do here.
