The seahorse agent seems to be a reincarnation of the quintuple-agent.
That is not a proper solution.  The gpg-agent solution is a far better
one.  You may disagree here but so be it.  There is still 1.4
available implementing this option.

Anyway, the seahorse agent won't work with future versions of gpg2.
gpg2 will eventually move all secret key operation to gpg-agent and
require support for the full, gpg-agent API.  gpgsm already works this
way and it is logical to do the same with gpg2.
