Can't imagine a good reason to do this. Let's say you did do that. Then
anyone who ran `ps aux | grep ssh` would be able to see your password!
Still, if you really must, you could write a script for expect that does
what you want.
Why don't you tell us why you want to do this so that we can suggest a
possibly better way of going about things?
