It would be nice to be able to reconfigure the port forwarding setup using the Change Settings box, and have PuTTY at least attempt to shift to the new configuration. This would involve cancelling remote forwardings and starting new ones, closing local listening sockets and starting new ones, so it isn't a trivial piece of work.

SGT, 2004-12-28: Should now be done. Turned out to be made a lot easier by the packet-handler restructuring I did in r4901 to fix ssh2-kex-data, ext-data-at-start and portfwd-at-start.
