Hm, I'm reading in the announcement:

 * Add support for tunneling arbitrary network packets over a
   connection between an OpenSSH client and server via tun(4) virtual
   network interfaces. This allows the use of OpenSSH (4.3+) to create
   a true VPN between the client and server providing real network
   connectivity at layer 2 or 3. This feature is experimental and is 
   currently supported on OpenBSD, Linux, NetBSD (IPv4 only) and 
   FreeBSD. Other operating systems with tun/tap interface capability 
   may be added in future portable OpenSSH releases. Please refer to 
   the README.tun file in the source distribution for further details
   and usage examples.

Getting this work on Dfly would be neat...
