Why "git@" instead of "<username>@"?  For example, previously I had

origin ssh:// (fetch)
origin ssh:// (push)

because craigb was my username on the servers.  Are you
saying GitHub figures out who you are via your SSH key and everyone's
username is "git"?

If I do this:

$ git remote set-url origin ssh://

git pull tells me the repository does not exist or I do not have
access.  If I leave off the "ssh://" it does allow me to pull.
Haven't tried to push yet, so I don't actually know if I have the
correct set-up.
