--- Comment #42 from Thomas Kluyver <thomas at kluyver.me.uk> ---
Is there anything we can do to move this forwards? I've also just run
into the lack of support for signalling processes started through SSH.

Would it help to separate out the client part from the server part? It
seems that most of the discussion that has held it up is about the user
interface. If the server part went in, other clients could start using
it to send signals while OpenSSH worked out how to expose it in the

At present, other implementations are stuck waiting for OpenSSH to
support this, because they're usually used against an OpenSSH server.

E.g. for Python: https://github.com/paramiko/paramiko/issues/785
and for Go: https://github.com/golang/go/issues/16597
