Sure, but in general I have more control over the client than I have
over the machines in the DMZ at my university. In another setup I'd like
to be able to give people access to machines inside the internal network
without giving them a working shell in the passwd. If I require them to
run a command in order to hop to the next host I need to do that.

My point is that there is an use case for the feature I'm suggesting;
availability of only slightly less annoying ways to implement that does
not invalidate my use case.

I'd even be interested in contributing code, however I'm not sure on how
to do that in this case.
