Dear maintainer,

actually this should be a wishlist bug, I know, but so close before the freeze, I dare filing this issue as important.

The OpenSSH 6.7 brings a new feature that can greatly enhance security for tools that use port forwarding via SSH.

OpenSSH allows socket files and/or IP ports as tunnel endpoints. This feature is something, I would really love to see in Debian jessie!!!

Thanks and hopefully you share my severity level approach... ;-)
