: ssh me@some-host.tld -R 8080:localhost:80

Is 'localhost' really what you want there? That forwards port 8080 on
some-host to port 80 on the same machine.

: However I had to notice that this only binds to the loopback interface
: and not to all. For -L there is the -g option to low connects to locally
: forwarded ports for remote hosts. As far as I can see there is no
: equivalent for remotely forwarded ports.
:
: Is there any reason this is not implemented?

It's implemented in sshd; you need to have 'GatewayPorts' set to 'yes'
in sshd_config on the remote end.

Alternatively:

ssh me@some-host.tld 'ssh -N -g -L 8080:this-host:80 me@this-host'

Or, if you really do mean localhost above, then:

ssh me@some-host.tld 'ssh -N -g -L 8080:localhost:80 me@localhost'

Strikes me you'd be better off with something else (such as an actual
redirect in the remote host's firewall, or even two netcat connected
by pipes....
