Except you'll have to repair your private key every time you want to 
decrypt anything (unless I'm grossly mistaken). When something is 
decrypted with your public key, you can only decrypt it with the private 

If you're only encrypting things for long term storage and infrequent 
access, perhaps this won't be so challenging. But if so, then why not 
simply store them on some media secured away in something like a safe? If 
you will need frequent or even occasional access to the encrypted data, I 
would think it far easier to learn and remember a password. Or better yet 
a smartcard with a simple PIN--as has been suggested.
