Many people use sshagent for that.  (I assume you're talking about SSH

Ah, yes.  You'll probably have to get recommendations from someone else,
in this caregory, because I use nothing but console editors, these days,
and so don't know what's considered the best graphical programmers'
editors on X11.  (That is, I have no basis for an opinion, and am
starting from zero in even letting you know what's out there.)

Zoinks, SlickEdit (proprietary), Epsilon (proprietary), CRiSP
(proprietary), and of course Xemacs seem worth looking into, based on
