It's not really security.  It's administration.  On port 22, there are
so many bogus requests, that looking at the SSH logs is pointless,
there's too much noise.  On a weird port, you can look at the logs,
and have it be useful.  And having admins that look at the logs is
better security.

Happy hacking,
