ssh keys and Leopard

I’ve been an SSHKeychain user for quite a while and I was a little concerned that something would change with Leopard that would kill it off for a while. Well, it turns out Leopard pretty much obviates the need for it. If you have private keys in your .ssh directory with the name id_dsa or id_rsa, Leopard will automatically try to add them to ssh-agent and optionally store the password in your Keychain. Thanks to Rachel Greenham for pointing this out.
