Technically those variables apply to the provider that runs the jobs
(coasters in this case) not the provider that starts the service (ssh-cl
in this case). There is currently no way for the coaster provider to
know what variables to forward to what provider.

.ssh/config, the same way .ssh/auth.defaults worked.

Good point. I will remove them, since even in the plain ssh-cl
case, .ssh/config should suffice.
