Something like this might be interesting.
For people using kerberos it would be nice to have a GUI wrapper for
kinit that could be launched from the session manager at startup.

I'd rather have the Gnome ssh-add GUI know to do this (and to set
restartanyway) automatically.

My understanding is that right now you have to create a .Xclients that
says "exec ssh-agent gnome-session" in order to have this work.  I'd
much prefer to see this done via some more user-friendly mechanism,
like a checkbox in the control center.

I definitely don't have time to implement this though :-(
