May I ask why not?

This possibility proved to be veeery useful to me. I'm doing things
like the following with it:


Host wbl
    RemoteCommand wakeonlan -f wol/bjkau-linux.wol

command to wake up my box remotely:

ssh wbl


Host v2bl
    User root
    LocalForward 5900 localhost:5900
    RemoteCommand x11vnc -localhost -timeout 120 -display :0 -auth

command to start a secure remote x11vnc session:

ssh v2bl
vinagre localhost (or invoked via GUI)

config which would be possible without RemoteCommand but veeeeery ugly
like shown in the initial comment:

Host sf* shell.sf.net shell.sourceforge.net
    HostName shell.sourceforge.net
    RequestTTY yes
    RemoteCommand create

command to connect to SF Shell service:

ssh sfj

I would really miss this feature if it doesn't get added and always
building an own version with my patch is cumbersome. :-( I'd really
appreciate if this also gets added like suggested.
