I use this technique and get suprisingly good performance.
I supplemented this technique with a small program which runs
under cron and checks the link from the initiating side.   It
reestablishes the link if it goes away.  Used with the -N option
to ssh, you can just set up the port forwarding without the
ssh session being up.

Source for the program is at:
