(I hope you don't mind me sending the reply to the list)
This strategy does not work for two reasons:
1. when -N is used, command= / ForceCommand is not executed. It only forces
running of a command when there is either an interactive session
requested or a command on the command line.
2. (less of an issue), the user's shell can no longer be /bin/false; it has
to be a real shell.
