Option equivalent to -n in client?

Dear asymptosis, all,

Some time ago I created (and offered on this list) a similar patch for
the uppercase `-N` flag, which also has no corresponding sshconfig

Back then it didn't receive much interest (no offense, this was just
my impression), but I could give it a second try, forward-port it and
adjust it for adding a `-n` flag equivalent as well.

Would that make sense?

Best regards,
Volker Diels-Grabsch
