--- Comment #1 from Damien Miller <> ---
Generally your best option in this case it to use ssh-agent. It is
possible to ssh-add passworded keys to an agent by passing the password
on stdin.

In OpenSSH 8.4, it will also be possible to force the use of
$SSH_ASKPASS via the $SSH_ASKPASS_REQUIRE environment (see bug #69),
which might offer another approach for you.
