summary: Logging for Pageant
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

It would be good if Pageant could provide a log of requests that have been made of it (who, what, when) - particularly useful if agent forwarding is in use. Perhaps something in the style of PuTTY's Event Log? Perhaps a persistent disk log would also be useful.

If nothing else, this gives you a means of finding out if agent forwardings have been unexpectedly abused.

2015-05: downgraded the difficulty. Now that the main Pageant code is centralised and cross-platform, the work for this is mostly done; it's now merely a matter of setting up an event log GUI window (which could probably be shared with PuTTY's own) and deciding whether we also need a log-to-disk option.
