That's not an answer to my question though, it will require *exactly*
what I require for it to work.

I need some way for ssh-agent or the gnome equivalent (seahorse et al)
to automatically use my login password as the ssh key.  That's how the
above would work (if it does) without asking the user for the key at
mount time.
