On my mac running OpenSSH_7.8p1, LibreSSL 2.6.2 connecting outbound when
the host key is found to mismatch a recorded entry in known_hosts it allows
me to connect.. however disables some features, notably port forwarding and
agent forwarding.

Removing the clashing line in ~/.ssh/known_hosts fixed this so that when I
connect it allows the features.

Does anyone have experience with this? Related is StrictHostKeyChecking no
is set. I would expect the behavior to be binary, either I can connect or
not if it *suspects* mitm.
