There's a gpg-agent(1);  it's kicked off as needed by gpg(1) these days
AIUI.  I've not used it, but I assume it works similarly to ssh-agent in
that you ssh-add(1) a key once, authenticating, and it dishes out the
necessary as and when.  That's how us cool kids SSH willy-nilly about
the Internets without entering passwords.

Cheers, Ralph.
