Thanks a lot for the hint. I figured out how to do it with an expect
script. Now I'm sure I'll be finding a solution for restricting access
to that script as well.

I *did* try that. The problem was that while I could log into the telnet
server, the (s)ftp server that hosts the file I want to download mirrors
my homedir with all the necessary stuff, but is not set up to allow for
key-based authentication. And is not going to be so for a while, the
admin told me.
