zsh has a syntax which allows me to use a conditional on the version,

if is-at-least 4.3.5; then
  do this

Maybe openssh-client could get that too?& I do prefer the "duck typing"
approach of checking for options directly, but I also see the security
problems. So instead, assuming an option appeared in 4.3, why not let
the user say so
