I'm not talking about which filehandle the password will come from, I was 
asking if something like...

cat blah | ssh nobody at nowhere "cat - > blah"

...will work regardless of whether I have to manually enter a password to 
kick it off or not (as opposed to having trusted ssh hosts with no 
passwords required).
