This is a little strong.

I use Cygwin 'ssh' under Emacs a lot. What doesn't work is when ssh
tries to prompt for a passphrase, or for other user input (like "do
you want to save this host").

So I launch ssh-agent, do ssh-add, then launch emacs. I also do the
first login to any machine outside Emacs; after that I can use ssh
quite nicely under Emacs.

It could be better, but it's functional.
