Maybe reimplemented as an irssi ncurses window?

I was thinking something along these lines earlier trying various ssh
Perl scripts but I do not know how to handle detecting the local
console versus someone who is ssh'ed in restarting  the server (at any

service httpd start) -- bottom line is that some human will have to
enter the passphrase manually =(
