I bring putty on my usb-stick and have an ssh applet on my own https
server. I guess it comes down to judgment call on the internet café
itself and the urgency of the requirement to log in. For me, it's a last
resort, and opie saves me bringing a laptop or dork-o-phone on holiday
for that unlikely event.
I'm paranoid enough to suspect keylogging and screen-capture, but not
enough to suspect subversion of average internet café's PC UI in
real-time, while agreeing with you that it's possible.
