I'm just pointing out once the code is written to read the configuration
at loadtime, there is no need to change otherwise because it's not a
bug... I'm saying it could be a feature :)

Depends.  For sshd, there's little reason to, especially when you could be
opening up security holes.  For a program designed for security, it's
especially important to put security first and convenience second,
especially when the potential convenience improvement is little and
the potential security holes it could open up is great.

Anyway, why are you writing e-mails?  Shouldn't you be at the cornfield?
