Terminal SSH Options

 Is it possible to have more configuration over the Terminal options in Royal?  I ask because I want to allow a newer option for StrictHostKeyChecking, but can't seem to find a way to disable some of the current options and adding in custom options?

OpenSSH 7.6 has introduced new StrictHostKeyChecking=accept-new

I have an option to Enable SSH Host Key Mismatch Warning.  When this option isi disabled (unchecked), the Terminal options set StrictHostKeyChecking=ask.  When it is enabled (checked), it sets the StrictHostKeyChecking=no and UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null options. 

Sample process output with Enable SSH Host Key Mismatch Warning disabled (unchecked).

Ideally, I would love to have more flexibility when possible to remove or add options in order to customize the Terminal sessions such as maintaining a known hosts file and warning on host key mismatches, and auto accepting new keys if possible.

Thanks for your time!
