Thank you for the sugestions.

How about this?

  $ ssh -d localmachine

Currently -d is not in use in the ssh --help list. Could a "-d" options 
be added to disable the use of the ProxyCommand?

also is there any reason why ssh --help is not in alphabetical order? 
numbered options first then alphabetically.
