They also have no concept of "interactivity" at all. My quick hack in
this direction has been to simply disable password prompts via a global
boolean variable in app_state. I then headed to adapt and use
key_store::cache_decrypted_key to decrypt and cache a particular private
key before its usage via another automate command, but gave up on this
idea because the key_store (and therefor its cache) seems to be
reinitialized after every (automate) command. I guess there are still
two other valid options to get the private key decrypted even via stdio,
the lua hook and ssh_agent, so maybe my attempt is not that much needed
after all.

I'll leave your branch untouched because I think it will sooner be ready
to land than my changes will and I don't want to block you. The code is
actually ready, but I need to fiddle around with lua to actually test
the out-of-band stuff properly. This has hold me back last time as well,
but I hope I figure it out this time :)
