This is a Gtk2-based passphrase dialog for use with OpenSSH.
These dialogs are intended to be called from the ssh-add program and
not invoked directly.
There is only two run-time options: if you set the environment variable
"GNOME_SSH_ASKPASS_GRAB_SERVER=true" then gtk2-ssh-askpass will grab
the X server.  If you set "GNOME_SSH_ASKPASS_GRAB_POINTER=true", then the
pointer will be grabbed too.  These may have some benefit to security if
you don't trust your X server.  We grab the keyboard always.
