I am one of the maintainers of the patch. The current release is not
suitable for merging as it is too invasive. We are working on writing
a cleaner version, and I have emailed enabling patches to the list
before, but it seems of limited interested to the OpenSSH developers.
Our attempts to take small easily reviewable steps on our way to a
cleaner implementation have been met with, well, no reaction what so
ever :/

See: http://marc.info/?l=openssh-unix-dev...5024604825&w=2 and
more recently: http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.network.openssh.devel/

The latter bug is now four months old, no reply yet.

So, I wouldn't hold out much hope.
