OpenSolaris shipped this ssh_config(4) parameter:


         Specifies a comma-separated list of  ssh_config  parame-
         ters,  which, if unknown to ssh(1), are to be ignored by

         This parameter is primarily intended to be used  in  the
         per-user ssh_config, ~/.ssh/config. While this parameter
         can also be used in the system wide  /etc/ssh/ssh_config
         file, it is generally useless as the capabilities of the
         ssh(1) client on that host should match that file.

There is no DontIgnoreIfUnknown as I had originally proposed in
PSARC/2004/505 (see
