That's what gpg-agent is.  To make it use caching, you have to
configure it (default-cache-ttl SECONDS into ~/.gnupg/gpg-agent.conf).
You also need to have pinentry installed (and configure the path to
the pinentry you are using with "pinentry-program
/usr/bin/pinentry-gtk" or similar in gpg-agent.conf).  Finally, you
need to use the option --use-agent with gpg (you can use gpg 1.2.x).
