support putty's pageant authentication agent on MS Windows

On Unices we can just grab the location of the SSH_AUTH_SOCK environment variable and connect to it.

On Windows, no idea.

This is now more important since Twisted-Conch seems unable to load certain types of password protected rsa private keys, see #191

Unlike ssh-agent, pageant seems to be designed to talk to putty only, I could not find any documentation on how you would talk to it, and it seems that apart from putty no-one does.

Not going to bother trying to reverse engineer this crap, the twisted bug is fixed so we will just use that to load keys. (see #191)

Any chance of revisting this now that Paramiko supports the pageant-protocol? (

We don't use paramiko any more. So unless someone writes the equivallent for twisted, no. Sorry.

Fair enough, thanks! I'll take a look at twisted and see if it seems feasible...
