No, that's for keeping alive an existing connection - it doesn't
appear to restore it after the laptop's been suspended long enough to
break it.

(In this regard, SMB wins because the connection is made afresh every
time you try to fetch a file. But smbfs seems to have the same
suspending problem as sshfs.)
