That is nice. I just like to do it in steps when I explain something.
That way people will learn something. Otherwise I would just write a scrip
and say: run this. (Hey. Nice idea. :-)

It still asks for the password and the point is that it shouldn't. At least
that happens with me.

If I don't use that, I can't run a remote script automagially. It keeps
asking for a passphrase. Now why would I eneter a passpfrase if I son't
want to enter a password.

I might need a real example on how to run a remote script.
