I don't consider gnome-keyring to be an adequate ssh-agent replacement.  Hence
my initial suggestion to "make it so that the user can change which agent is
started".  I've also modified my xinitrc-common so that gpg-agent is used
instead of ssh-agent.

gnome-keyring is useless to me because it doesn't provide access to
authentication keys stored on a smart card (as gpg-agent does) and because it
doesn't provide a method for an app to check that a given password/key is in the
keyring without unlocking the keyring.  But that's another gripe entirely.
