Force SSH to use password authentication

Rarely but happens when you have to log in to a remote server using password instead of public-key authentication. It’s very easy to do:

ssh -o PubkeyAuthentication=no user@machine

It happened to me on Mac when I had the key in keychain and tried to log in to a different server with the same name. Keychain tried to supply my key.
