route information

Would it be possible to add a debug option that displays each host  
name as it connects to them?

I create tunnels that sometimes uses 3 intermediate machines before  
getting to the final destinations (I'm sure others create tunnels that  
are much deeper).  To debug a problem, it would be helpful to see each  
connection being made.  ssh -v[v[v]] doesn't display the hostnames (or  
I'm missing it in all the other verbage).

To farther build upon that, showing ping times between each host and  
total ping time between the source and destination would be great!

Standard ping and traceroute programs don't provide this information  
because they don't follow the ssh route/tunnel but instead use the  
standard system routing.
