--- Comment #18 from Roumen Petrov <bugtrack at roumenpetrov.info> ---
Proposed solution is not compatible with current configuration rules -
quote "For each parameter, the first obtained value will be used." 
SendEnv is multi value keyword but it seems to me proposed correction
allows administrator to clear all user settings with SendEnv -*.
As result the only solution is user to bay-pass system configuration
using explicit configuration for example alias ssh="ssh -F

At runtime SendEnv is checked according 'simple' pattern. This model
does not supports negated arguments.

There is another implementation "patern-list" with negated arguments.

Using  "patern-list"  user could setup configuration like "SendEnv 
LANG,!*" and so first parameter will take precedence. 

May I request change in solution?
