i plan to use my GPG authentication key to do a login via ssh onto my server.
I tried monkeysphere to convert my GPG key to a ssh key, and adding the key to the ssh-agent. Everything works as expected.

But the question i have is, will `ssh-add` or `monkeysphere subkey-to-ssh-agent` will fail when my GPG subkey is expired?
Has anyone experience with GPG and ssh authentication?
Should i use the gpg-agent instead of the ssh-agent?
