Good point.  I use -ieDf for ssh over CurveCP and it works like a charm
even on old hardware.  So really, the desired functionality will still
be in OpenSSH, and there will still be at least two distinct ways of
getting it (instead of three).  It's sensible to remove duplicate
functionality in OpenSSH, particularly where it's better placed

So people can look at -i and -D flags.  They work!
