The problem with the ssh patch is that it currently bumps 
LINE_BUFFER_SIZE in params.h from 1024 to 8192. I mentioned ways to 
mitigate (at least to some extent) this long ago, did you look at that?

This currently stops this format from being just a plugin. And I'm not 
sure if that bump could have implications. Solar?
