su(1) usually asks for password. but it does not when run by root, of course. :-) i like `ssh -i`, too. only that i'll have to check whether it won't complain that identity file ownership doesn't match user running it. (which would be root i expect) also, i've been kindly reminded of cron(8) and its @reboot option. thank you all for your input!
