Hi Brian,

I am somewhat ambivalent about your patch.

It is not clear to me how shell scripts might be
able to pass an appropriate one-time-password to

Is this lack is why there is no sanity.sh
infrastructure to deal with this new feature?

If it is only possible to read from /dev/tty, then
perhaps that fact also needs to be included in the

For myself, I might like to see it possible to use
something like the ssh-askpass program such as is
used by OpenSSH when there is a need to ask the
user for a password, but /dev/tty is not a
controlling terminal device?

I do understand the desire to get prompted by
a one-time-password, but wonder if :ext: using
"ssh" as a transport does not already solve this
problem more efficiently?

I believe I would like to see either Derek or Larry
give it a thumbs-up or down.
