I floated the idea recently with Darren of introducing Match for ssh_config:

Match user djm host
	IdentityFile foo

I'll try to implement this for 6.3 if I get time and nobody beats me to it.
It's pretty easy if anyone wants to have a go at it - most of the
infrastructure already exists for the "Host" directive.
