Pageant is a public/private key management system for putty. It
securely stores public/private keys for ssh so that you can use that
instead of having to use username/passwords for all of your ssh
connections. If you are confident that your development machine is
relatively secure then I would look into this because it's waaaay more
convenient than username/passwords.

Read this archived post:

Two reasons: the first is that it could lead to greater performance
throttling a few SSH connections. two, as the above post illustrates,
it's just easier sometimes. Most people use a key-manager like Pageant
to handle this so they really don't experience the multiple logins for
too long (because yes it is really annoying).
