Personally, I wouldn't recommend using SSH agent forwarding to pony.
Considering how many random people have root accounts on there, it's
possible that someone with a local root account can use your remote
key for authentication while you're logged in.

Probably not a giant risk, but throwing it out there.

I prefer to use SSH port forwarding and connect through that. An
example session might go something like:

jof at hostname:~ $ ssh -Nf -L 2222: pony.noisebridge.net
jof at hostname:~ $ ssh -p 2222 -o 'StrictHostKeyChecking no' localhost
jof at $
