Will this allow me to do the folowing:

	# open an ssh master connection, without port forwarding
	ssh -oControlPath=foo -oControlMaster=yes -N -f user at host
	# forward a port over the already-open master connection
	ssh -oControlPath=foo -oControlMaster=yes -N -f \
		-L 25:localhost:25 user at host
