Hai Kjetil,

I just finished such a beast...

If you can read Dutch you can use my pages right now [1]. They explain
all this in excruciating detail. OpenSSH and SSH.com interoperability
and setting up ssh-agent are explained too. Some scripts are provided to
automate all this.

On the other hand, if you can wait 'til after the weekend I'll translate
those pages to English for you (and anyone else who'd like to use them
of course).
