Yes I think so. Here's one solution that's a bit convoluted but works:
1. You set up a screen session local to your own machine, reachable by JJ.
2. JJ runs this command (could be in the form a script) to ssh to your
ssh -R 2222:someinternalserver:22 -l supportusername yoursupporthost
3. You use the tunnel to ssh back to his machine, and he can type the
password for you.
4. Assist in setup
This is a bit convoluted though, and may not be appropriate for JJ. For
my purposes it would be fine, although maybe a bit slow (extra latency
with 2 round-trips for every keystroke).
Maybe I can modify kibitz to do what I want. Some kind of SSL-protected
