Quite so, ssh-agent is lovely and things like keychain make it usable :) (Of course it won't protect you if the machine on which the agent is running is rooted: they could keylog you, install a malicious agent, et seq ad nauseam. But it's useful if machines you connect to from the agent machine are compromised.)
