multiple successive SSH_MSG_CHANNEL_REQUESTs?

Unanswered Question

One of the key differences between SSH1 and SSH2 is that SSH2 lets you have multiple channels per connection whereas SSH1 only lets you have one.  The following URL corroberates:

My question is...  why doesn't the Cisco IOS allow multiple channels?

I'd like to be able to send a bunch of exec-type channel requests (see rfc4254#section-6.5 for details) per connection but it would appear that I cannot since the Cisco IOS device closes the connection after my first channel request has been fulfilled.

Is there a work around?  Do new Cisco devices fix this?
