Looks like this (I haven't tried...):


By the way, is the ForceCommand (and other directives) really supposed
to be private for different keys (or, more widely, for different matches
for the same user).


I created three separate keys, so three separate accounts. I can't see
any valid reason that account #3 (that is the third key listed) should
be able to see the first and second force commands. These commands could
contain sensitive commands/passwords (e.g. log in with a key to trigger
some automated job by the backup user) for example.
