       Net::SSH::Perl::Config -	Load and manage	SSH configuration

	   use Net::SSH::Perl::Config;
	   my $cfg = Net::SSH::Perl::Config->new($host,	foo => 'bar');
	   my $v = $cfg->get('foo');

       Net::SSH::Perl::Config manages configuration data for Net::SSH::Perl.
       It merges options handed	to it at object	construction with options read
       from configuration files.  Just as in the actual	ssh program, the first
       obtained	value of a configuration parameter is the value	that's used;
       in other	words, values given in the original parameter list will	always
       override	values read from configuration files.

       The configuration files should be in the	same format used for the ssh
       command line program; see the ssh manpage for information on this
       format. Net::SSH::Perl::Config understands a subset of the
       configuration directives	that can live in these files; this subset
       matches up with the functionality that Net::SSH::Perl can support.
       Unknown keywords	will simply be skipped.

   Net::SSH::Perl::Config->new($host, %args)
       Constructs a new	configuration container	object and returns that
       object. $host is	the host to which you're applying this configuration;
       you can leave it	out (pass in an	undefined or empty argument) if	it's
       not applicable to you.

       $host is	needed for parsing the host-specific sections of the
       configuration files; the	Host keyword restricts a set of	directives as
       applying	to a particular	host (or set of	hosts).	When it	encounters
       such a section, Net::SSH::Perl::Config will skip	all of the directives
       in the section unless the host matches $host.

       %args can contain the same arguments that you can pass to the new
       method of Net::SSH::Perl--those arguments are eventually	passed through
       to this method when setting up the SSH object. The elements in %args
       override	values in the configuration files.

       Reads in	the configuration file $file and adds any appropriate
       configuration data to the settings maintained by	the $cfg object. If
       $file is	unreadable, simply returns quietly.

       As stated above,	values read from the configuration files are
       overridden by those passed in to	the constructor.  Furthermore, if
       you're reading from several config files	in sequence, values read from
       the first files will override those read	from the second, third,
       fourth, etc. files.

       Merges the directive option $line into the configuration	settings in
       $cfg. $line should be an	option in the format used in the config	file,
       eg. "BatchMode yes". This is useful for merging in directives that are
       not necessarily in the config file, similar to how the -o option	works
       in the ssh command line program.

       Returns the value of the	configuration parameter	$key, and undefined if
       that parameter has not been set.

   $cfg->set($key, $value)
       Sets the	value of the parameter $key to $value, and returns the new
