this is meant to run in a gateway (login system to external/internal
networks) which is running restricted shell.the only commands available
on the system are ssh and exit.

while with unpatched client user could do:

ssh -p PermitLocalCommand=yes somesystem.com

then on remote system ~~C


and the have unrestricted shell on a gateway! (even if /bin/bash is not
on their $PATH originally)
