Yup. Currently seahorse-agent performs passphrase caching for GNOME
users of Seahorse. Once gnupg2 is stable, then it won't need to anymore.

However to continue with functionality like listing cached secrets in
the notification area, it'll need to be able to poll gpg-agent for the
key ids of the secrets it has cached.
