Not generally a good idea, but I've needed it before.

With an agent, you'll be asked for your passphrase once per boot / session / 
shell (depends on your level of paranoia).  But, ssh/scp/sftp will not need to 
request your input.

This way your key material is still protected by a passphrase on disk, but you 
don't have to go through the effort of entering it every time you use it.
