That's SSH agent authentication.  I'm not sure whether RISC OS/Unixlib will handle
Unix domain sockets (RISC OS doesn't really do IPC as there's no P to speak
of), but if not is there a way to make it use use key files
($HOME/.ssh/id_rsa and similar)?

I think Nettle's SSH support [not NettleSSH] manages to use keys and uses
libssh2 on RISC OS, BICBW.

I'll try and turn the handle manually when I get a minute, unless anyone
gets there first.

Thanks for the patches,
