Neither Jameson nor myself has commit access to the canonical OpenSSH
repo, so we simply can't do any merges.

You pointed out that the main reason you didn't want to use ProxyCommand
for this was because TcpKeepAlive (and some other options?) would
therefore have no effect.

However, a patch for #1766 (exporting the ssh config to child processes)
would allow you to propagate the relevant choices to the ProxyCommand:


Fixing 1766 would also enable fixes to other bugs (like #1233), so it
seems more generically useful to me than a specific SetupCommand hook,
which only solves your particular problem.

I recommend filing your SetupCommand patch as an issue in
https://bugzilla.mindrot.org/ so there is a canonical place for public
