No, its basically unsupported. It may work it if you have your keys set
up to not require a password or passphrase but it hasn't been tested
much. I'm going to remove it real soon now.

The openssh code is broken beyond belief for this kind of thing. Theres
no way at all to hook authentication reliably. If I get enthusiastic I
might look at ripping off the protocol code from one of the alternative
ssh implementations.
