           Summary: Enable continuation with '\' (backslash) in
                    /etc/ssh/sshd_config (feature request)
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 2.9.9p2
          Platform: ix86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: sshd
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: e.maryniak at pobox.com

Feature request, short synopsis:

  Enable continuation with '\' (backslash) in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.


  Analogous to Apache's and other configuration files, it would be nice
  if long config lines in, e.g., sshd_config, could be split up. Example:

    AllowUsers user1 at host1.somewhere.com user1 at host2.somewhere.com \
               user2 at host1.somewhere.com user2 at host3.somewhere.com

  etc. This is especially handy when (remotely) logged in on a 80x24
  char tty and when doing screen copy & pastes on 80col tty's because
  some terminal emulators insert a \n even for wrapped lines at col. 80.
