Not helpful when your IP changes without your intervention. :)

The use case I'm thinking of is SSH on a mobile device, say a netbook
or phone, where you're moving ad-hoc between different wired and/or
wireless networks, getting a different IP every time.

I'd suggest that a robust solution should probably work even when the
TCP connection is lost for any reason (with the possible exception of
an explicit close).
