Perfect. What is the expectation for connecting to a non-OpenSSH
server if the client has ServerAliveInterval set? Is keepalive support
somehow negotiated at connection?
Also, it would be nice to be able to set a ClientAliveInterval, but
also set "ClientAliveCountMax 0". This would cause keepalives to be
sent, but the session to never be torn down if keepalives aren't
acknowledged (for interoperability with ssh clients that don't do
keepalives correctly). The documentation is unclear on if this would
work as I would hope. Does openssh already work this way, and if not,
can this feature be added?
