Greetings, Michael Wild!

You. Are. The. Best.
Finally I can have access to elevated pageant from regular desktop!

Autostart (elevated):

test -f "$HOME/.ssh_agent" && . "$HOME/.ssh_agent"
eval $(ssh-pageant.exe -k)
ssh-pageant.exe -s | tee "$HOME/.ssh_agent"

test -f "$HOME/.ssh_agent" && . "$HOME/.ssh_agent"

Works like a charm!
Now, I don't know, what is more important. Long-awaited Cygwin .34 release or
sudden availability of transparent key-based authentication to the userland.
I'll probably put them both on the same height.
