1. Isn't it a bad idea to be storing your SSH keys long term in 
process memory of a remote system anyway?  Or are these keys only for 
Fedora stuff?

2. Doesn't running screen with shells and stuff in it kinda defeat the 
purpose of $TMOUT?  I mean, if the idea is to free up resources, you 
aren't really freeing up much if you can keep an idle screen session 
with 10 shells open in it with emacs or whathaveyou.
