I find the ssh-pageant package helpful to enable cygwin ssh to interact 
seamlessly with PuTTY's Pageant SSH agent. One small issue is that after 
installing, one has to add the lines:

> |# ssh-pageant eval $(/usr/bin/ssh-pageant -r -a 
> "/tmp/.ssh-pageant-$USERNAME")|
<>to .bashrc for each user.

Would it be acceptable to update the ssh-pageant package to add a file 
/etc/profile.d/ that does this automatically?

Or is there another preferred way to do this, e.g. a postinstall script?

I'd be happy to draft a script file for review.
