Oops, I accidentally closed this without an explanation:

The options in ssh_config may have serious security implications. For example,
consider one version not understanding an option which restricted access.

Another thing to consider: we already have some non-fatal backwards
compatibility (with sDeprecated and sUnsupported in readconf.c), but we can't
change the past to give forward compatibility :)
