--- Comment #5 from Hamish Moffatt <hamish-openssh at moffatt.email> ---
I see in scp.c that -oForwardAgent=no is added to the command line
arguments internally to disable forwarding, but can be overridden.

Would it be helpful to also add -oControlMaster=no so that scp does not
end up creating the control master with agent forwarding disabled?

Alternatively it would be useful if the config file could match against
scp/sftp so that ControlMaster=no could be set for that case.
