Description (last modified by Glyph)

For OpenSSH, the ~/.ssh/config file allows the user to set configuration options for the user, or for individual hosts. Personally, I use this to assign short names to common servers, and to use different identity files. Conch should have a way to do this as well.

There is a related ticket, #3830, for reading from an OpenSSH-style config file.

Replying to z3p:

Yes, absolutely, great, fantastic.

But before we start mucking about with more compatibility concerns, let's just make sure that Conch can support the functionality in question in a nicely factored way first :). There has been a tendency for certain Conch features to be developed, shall we say, megamonolithically.

It would be even better if it were generic enough to support reading from an OpenSSH-style config file.

In the interest of smaller pieces, I've filed a separate ticket, #3830, for the compatibility aspects of this task.
