Whatever happened to bz#983?

Hello all,

Some time ago there seemed to be progress on the RequiredAuthentication
patch that would allow sshd to require that multiple authentication
methods be successful in order to grant access to a system. [1]

That patch was used as a poster-child for the Match keyword that
was subsequently added. Unfortunately, it looks like
development on this feature has stalled.

Are there plans to revive this feature enhancement or was there
insufficient feedback from the community to warrant the effort?

Just curious. It looked like an interesting feature that could
be useful in some environments.
