I mentioned that I wanted p and g to have default values, to save 
sending them back and forth all the time.  I propose the following defaults:

p = 15517289818147369747123225776371553991572480196691540447970779531405\

g = 2

These are simply taken from the first line of my /etc/ssh/moduli file. 
I have double-checked p, and (p-1)/2, for primeness using Pari-GP and 
many iterations of the Miller-Rabin test, and checked thta 2 is a 
generator of Z*_p.
