Feature request: WinSCP to support ssh-agent for Windows

Please allow support of Windows OpenSSH agent pipe.
The name of the Windows OpenSSH agent pipe, default is: \.\pipe\openssh-ssh-agent
(Get-ChildItem \.\pipe).FullName | FindStr ssh
\.\pipe\openssh-ssh-agent
The community has some complicated solutions, see below.

But they are very inconvenience.

As mentioned in the tracker, it's more likely to be done, if you ask PuTTY team for it.

Thanks Martin for getting back to me.

I have emailed PuTTY team about this, waiting for their response.
