I think this is a little extreme.  If the other users are all trusted,
the risk is manageable.  For instance, over the Christmas holidays my
younger relatives will often use my laptop to do some of their
schoolwork.  I'm pretty sure my nieces aren't putting malware or
keyloggers on my laptop, so I'm fine with my private key being on my
laptop even though I'm permitting others to use it.
