At the moment, no. It might be possible to add more Match options to
select using the local connection address and port. E.g.

Match user djm laddr lport 33333
	PasswordAuthentication yes
	PubkeyAuthentication yes
	ChallengeResponseAuthentication yes
Match laddr lport 33333
	PasswordAuthentication no
	PubkeyAuthentication no
	ChallengeResponseAuthentication no

Darren wrote most of the Match code - what do you think, Darren?
