[1924] Does every command line SSH client support a -p (port) option?

Issue 1924 is concerned with making port specifications in svn+ssh:// URLs
work.

At the moment, we pass the raw host:port string to the tunnel agent.
Apparently this works for some ssh clients, but definitely not all.

There are two possible routes we could take:

(1) Hardcode a "-p PORTNUM" option into the tunnel agent invocation when the
URL contains a port.

(2) Completely revamp the tunnel agent code to allow customizable
interpolation of host and port into the command string.

Clearly (2) is more flexible, but is unlikely to get much use, as the
overwhelmingly dominant tunnel agent will be ssh, so it's not clear that the
extra complexity is worthwhile.

Your thoughts?

Max.
