I'm committing those changes. However, I believe I found a typo in your
ssh/scp modifications:

+		    if [ ${#1} -gt 2 ]; then
+			optconfigfile="$i"
+		    else

Shouldn't that be $1, instead of $i? AFAICT, $i is not defined anywhere, while
$1 perfectly makes sense there.

Committed with these corrections in bzr rev1199.

Committed in bzr rev1201.
