openssh connection sharing

So in openssh there is this feature called connection sharing that lets a
connection be reused. The first connection listens on another socket for
additional connections. Then additional connections go through that socket
instead of creating a whole new connection, session, and authentication

This is probably not documented anywhere except by just looking at the
openssh code, but has anyone ever thought about this? That would sure be
