The Lord of the Keys

I am currently using gpg-agent to hold both my gpg and ssh keys. I use two ssh 
keys, which means that when I log in I have to give up to four passphrases to 
unlock all of my keys. Given that gpg-agent is primarily a labor-saving device, 
I am wondering if it would be possible to configure it to accept just one 
passphrase and unlock all of my keys.

I believe I can do this using gnome-keyring, but at the moment gnome-keyring 
does not work with gpg on Fedora 18 for me because some incompatibility between 
the two programs. And frankly, I'd like to avoid the use of gnome-keyring if 
I can. So my question, is it possible to configure gpg-agent so that one 
passphrase can unlock all of my keys?
