Convenience Trumps Security

I access my remote svn repository by way of a ssh+svn tunnel.  Typing my passphrase in PuTTY pageant is tedious, but for security's sake, I've lived with it until now. 

But no more. 

Color my computer compromised.  (Which is no big deal, since it has a sandbox on it anyway.)  I'm now using Simon Brunning's excellent Python module winguiauto to take care of the old passphrase inconvenience.
