[ros-users] Use SSH Host entry for address attribute in <machine> tag in launch file

I would like to specify a host from my .ssh/config file as the address
attribute in one of my launch files.

<machine name="someserver" address="special"/>

so that in my .ssh/config file, I might have something like

Host special
    IdentityFiile  special_keyfile
    Port 9922
    HostName special.host.com

But when I try that, I'm told "cannot resolve host address for machine

a) Is it possible to do this somehow?
b) If not, do enough folks think that this would be worthwhile that I
should file an enhancement ticket for it?
