Why isn't this functionality built into ssh? I can see not accepting passwords on the command line, but why not encrypt passwords using a public key, and access them using the private key. So thus ssh-agent would control access.

    This has been posted on the wrong forum. Since I take it you are not suggesting that sshpass incorporate the entire functionality of ssh, then this is a feature request against ssh, not sshpass.
