Because older servers don't have RSA keys (or rather, they don't load
them). Instead of just inverting the order, whoever decided that we
should prefer DSA to RSA (before my time) just removed the two lines of
code that load the RSA key.
8 will load both RSA and DSA keys, as intended. So will 7, but that was
actually a mis-merge on my part. I will revert it as soon as I get
