This approach sort of works.  But there is a bug in ssh that causes it to occasionally hang
when working with a control master.  So it's not yet a general solution.  :(

(And no, I've no idea what triggers this bug, it appears to be platform-dependent, showing up
more often on MacOS X.  And yes, it's been reported to the OpenSSH developers.)
