Yes, that's exactly what I'm afraid of.

And then there is LDAP public key patch, and PKCS#11 patch and X509
patch and who knows what else patch etc. etc. And in the end we will
have openssh package which is so diverged from upstream that it will
take weeks of work to simply rebase to new upstream version.

Also as ssh(d) are realy security sensitive applications if there is
some unnoticed security problem in one of these patches it has much
bigger risk of staying unnoticed in public for a long time than in the
base upstream package.
