What for? signing/encrypting stuff? if so, maybe have a look at kuvert.

of course. as soon as you cache with anything you'll have to be as
careful as possible. the point in favour of q-agent, gpg-agent and similar:
if used right, that's the one and only place passwords/phrases are lingering.

(that's why fetchmail on my box mustn't cache, exmh has to use q-agent 
etc. pp)
