Removable drives (e.g., floppy), or other input devices such as serial ports provide a decent means of having an 'air-wall' between your secret keys and the OpenPGP application when they are not in use. There are a whole bunch of fun/exotic/paranoid measures one could go to to protect one's secret keys. Lots of them cut down on your productivity, though.
