The machine I run it on is in my home, and behind a firewall with no 
inbound access from the outside, so I consider it secure. My .bashrc 
sources the agent-id file, and I start ssh-agent by hand when I have to, 
saving its output into the aforementioned agent-id file. I don't reboot 
very often, so I don't have to restart ssh-agent very often. It wasn't 
worth the bother to try to automate the last little bit.
