I use it all the time. -A forwards authentication, if you've got an agent
running. Most likely, you've got ssh-agent as a daemon (check via ps). If
you've got a key in ~/.ssh/, like id_dsa & id_dsa.pub, and have used
ssh-add to add it, and the .pub is in the ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the
targets, you can go from one machine to another to another, without have
to come back.
