One time when I've found agent forwarding unavoidable is when working
on development of code hosted in fedorahosted. Checkouts can be done
anonymously, but pushing changes back to fedorahosted needs an
authenticated ssh connection. This counts as copying things between
machines but it's common enough for what I do in infrastructure that
I'd love to figure out some way around it.
I find that i need to when staging releases, i need to rsync data from
one host to another and its all done over ssh, i guess we could make
some custom rsync modules on some hosts to allow me to use plain old
rsync rather than rsync over ssh.
