This is a bit off-subject, but do you know (off-hand) how multisync
handles ssh connections?  The reason I am asking is I am writing a
ssh-tunnel applet frontend and I am using my own code,
gnome-system-tools are using their own code, and I imagine anyone who
has to use ssh is rolling their own way to connect to the pty.

Back on topic - if anyone wants help with this show me the way.  Having
an easy-to-use sync system would be great for my company's (the company
I work for) future linux rollout.
