Bug Description

openssh limits use of the askpass environment var to X desktops. This is a pain because it precludes a non X askpass setup which is useful for automation (especially where certs are not able to be used for political or technical reasons)

The patch is very non-intrusive.

This Wishlist applies to all current and development releases of Ubuntu and Debian.
