           Summary: Feature: -f -f, like -f, but fork() after
                    port/display/agent open
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.0.2p1
          Platform: All
               URL: http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=openssh-unix-
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: ssh
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: Nicolas.Williams at ubsw.com

New ssh option, "-f -f", like "-f", but fork() after the first successful
forwarded port/display/agent channel open.

The idea is that a successful forwarded port/display/agent channel open
implies that the remote command started successfully and can report
errors in some manner other than by writing to stderr or exiting with
a non-zero exit code. So that is a great time for ssh to fork() off.

Also see new forkoff() function added to clientloop.c - it correctly,
I think, closes the session channel.
