I got criticism when the platform-specific part of my patch got to about
150 lines, I'm not sure what kind of reaction you're going to get
embedding a tiny expect-like interpreter into sshd.

You may be better of using keyboard-interactive (but that has its own
set of problems: you basically need to have a callback from privsep
master to slave).

usually comes from bad judgement.
