Would it be possible to add a debug option that displays each host
name as it connects to them?

I create tunnels that sometimes uses 3 intermediate machines before
getting to the final destinations (I'm sure others create tunnels that
are much deeper). To debug a problem, it would be helpful to see each
connection being made. ssh -v[v[v]] doesn't display the hostnames (or
I'm missing it in all the other verbage).

To farther build upon that, showing ping times between each host and
total ping time between the source and destination would be great!

Standard ping and traceroute programs don't provide this information
because they don't follow the ssh route/tunnel but instead use the
standard system routing.
