    Is there any way to get the ssh client (I'm using OpenSSH_3.4p1) to exit (and
    give a failure code if possible) when a port forwarding fails? Wouldn't it
    make sense to do this if the -N option is specified? If the forwardings
    fail, then what is the point of the connection? I would like to do this in
    order to automate a set of port forwarding scripts. I need ssh to keep
    trying to create a forwarding until it is successful.
