I'd definitely be interested in something like this... I primarily use
Windows, but Cygwin is irreplacable for me and when I need SSH, I prefer
staying in cmd line.

Would it be possible to have both types of socket emulation (SSH and putty)
running at the same time? Git on Windows uses putty's pagenat a key agent...
