Alternatively, configure SSH ControlMaster.  The default configuration
will create an SSH connection in the background
(libretools.conf:HOOKPRERELEASE); if you configure SSH to be able to
reuse connections, it will only ask for your SSH password when
creating the initial background connection.

	$ cat ~/.ssh/config
	Host *
		ControlMaster auto
		ControlPath ~/.ssh/master-%r@%h:%p

Happy hacking,
