No problem.

I presume that will need to be properly quoted in order to be passed
through, and that they may want to specify more than one -o option.

That seems to mean that I'll have to do some sort of nasty quoting, and
then eval the ssh command in order to unwrap the quoting, or am I
things more complicated than they need to be?

Well, I've added a warning, and made the error messages a bit more
useful (hopefully), but in effect -- Done.

Do you mean 0022 in case they have something silly set, or 0177 or some
such for reasons of paranoia?
