authentication using ssh agent?

Hi there, it's probably not really a new topic but I have been searching google and this forum for quite some time and cannot find anything about this: I am trying to convince openvpn client to use an ssh agent to serve my private key. Obviously this is because I am too lazy to re-enter my private key password over and over ;).

To be more precise I am trying to do this on Windows 7 using openvpn.exe invoked by openvpn-gui.exe and a running putty pageant.exe 0.6.3.

Is this an old hat (in which case I would very much appreciate a hint where I can find something about it) or am I requesting something new here?

I am having the same problem. Did you find a solutions?

@Developers: Is there a plugin architecture that would allow external plugins to support external private keys?
