Oh, I didn't really mean strictly nnml.  I knew a about the other
backends of course and have done that over ange-ftp.  What I was
really getting at was if one could do this with tramp and not have to
set up ssh agent.  That is, be prompted by emacs for ssh password.

At my last usage.. Probably more than a year. I think it was not
possible.  Only with ssh-agent in place.

Yeah, I confused the issue by saying nnml.

Well, I've grabbed a fresh cvs tramp so yeah, I'll report back.
