Yup - at least a few builds have some kind of a console openssh variant 
as well (complete with scp/etc).  Not sure if that comes stock though (I 
doubt it).

Connectbot is by far the best I've used.  Supports key-based login, and 
has some built-in screen shortcuts (camera button hits ctrl-a/space). 
Early on I loved the comments on the market site - it was highly rated 
so lots of people probably stumbled on it, but there were tons of 1-star 
"what does this do?" ratings, followed by 5-star "if you don't know what 
ssh is, this app isn't for you" ones.
