I just went ahead and created a patch for OpenSSH.  It would be great
if somebody could review this.  I took extra care to meet your high
quality standards.

BTW, I wonder whether the folloing save-flags can be removed:

- "oexec_remote_command" (formerly "ono_shell_flag")
- "orequest_tty"

To my understanding, keeping "otty_flag" should be sufficient.
