I don't think this would be feasible in the current parser without a
significant rewrite.  The ssh -G works is that the parser runs as
normal, filling the Options structure which is then dumped to stdout. 
It's not general purpose parser.

I also don't see what the use case for this would be.  Could you give
an example?
