You can use the agent for inquiry and /caching/ of your passphrases, but
not for /storage/. The difference is in the lifetime: once gpg-agent
exits, any cached passphrases are forgotten. It can't be used as a
general passphrase store, unfortunately.
As for something completely different, you could use an encrypted
partition to store the credentials... It's just a thought.
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
