I'd quite like to have the confirm (ssh-add -c keyfile) behaviour from ssh-agent- but only for requests that are tunneled over ssh (ssh -A richo@somewhere).

Is this possible? The manpage seems to suggest not, unless I somehow work out how to start two agents and add to one without the confirm flag and one without the other. That's what I'll do if there's no simple solution.
