This will only work if I set sshd at my home server to listen for
connections on port 443 or 80 (all other ports are blocked by the
gateway behind which I happen to be) and the gateway does not perform
deep packet inspection.
Hence, tunneling ssh via https is the only sure-fire way of getting
through restrictive firewalls and corporate internet gateways.
