This can't work because it creates a race condition.  It is well
possible that key's passphrase expires from the cache after an info
function told you that the passphrase for the key is currently cached.

"ssh-add -l" is different in that it only tells you which keys are
availabale but not which have a cached passphrase.  This is the same as
running "gpg -K".



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
