You can't make it a client-side option if it's implemented on the
server side without extending the SSHv2 protocol [by adding a new
channel request type].

So now you're saying you'd be happy with a client-side option (which
you'd default a particular way, and I another, in ssh_config).

So you've come around to my position :)
