Don't use passphraseless keys unless you're using it for an automated
tool (eg rsync kicked off from cron).  If this is for human interactive
work then learn how to use ssh-agent.

(If it's for programmatic use then also learn the from= and command= options
on the public key to restrict what the key can do)
