You can use passphrases with ssh-keygen, too.  It's just that it's
most commonly used without one, much like Keychain.

Chris - What, if anything, would be the benefit of using a passphrase with
ssh, if you were using it mainly for shell scripts?  Does it affect the
functionality of the script?  I've set all my ssh connections up without a
passphrase, but I was curious about it.
