Support for ssh agent for storing password encrypted

Hello,

I don't see it in issue tracker: do you have any plans on adding support
for ssh agent as way to store password encrypted, possibly based on what
Jack Whitham prepared?

I'm in exactly same situation as he is (using multiple linux servers over
ssh connection) and I'm currently thinking about compiling subversion with
his patch myself, however I though I will ask if it won't arrive in
official distribution soon ... or, if you already looked at it and found
some problem with it.

(I'm currently relying on the directory attribute for protection but would
  prefer real encryption.)
