Hmm, okay, I just realized the protocol has a full specification at Would it be possible to get that protocol added to the list of manuals which typically get installed with the OpenSSH package?

Previously I was stumbling around in the dark based on what I can see in the manpages and stackexchange. With the protocol, I can see how I might be able to end up with something close to my requirements.

As Bernd said, there could be other uses for a new config like the one I requested. However, if I can get what I want from existing methods, then I probably wouldn't continue trying to implement something else :)

Thanks for your time!
