+1 This feature could be very useful.

@Tomas Pospisek : For now you can use only do some cheat with a shell
For example having your configuration file in ~/.ssh/config.d and make
that type of alias:
alias ssh="cat ~/.ssh/config.d/* > ~/.ssh/config ; ssh"
It my way to keep my config file up-to-date.

I subscribe to this ticket.
