Pageant should offer a wider range of key management options. For a start, it should be possible to load a key but defer decrypting it. Pageant would report the existence of the key, but only when it was first actually used would it bother asking for the passphrase. Then the key would be decrypted, and subsequent requests could be fulfilled immediately. Once that's possible, it would also allow a key to expire after being present for a certain time (or perhaps after being unused for a certain time). It might be useful for Pageant to be able to remember which keys it has loaded and reload them automatically on restart (though, again, this is probably only useful once we can defer decryption). It might be handy to have special command-line options for Pageant which would cause to start up, send commands to the primary Pageant, and shut down again. We can already add keys to the primary Pageant, but it might be good to be able to delete keys or shut it down as well.
Audit trail for this wish.
