I know that using key files for authentication is a future enhancement, but that would turn this project from "very good" to "by marvelous!".

However, when you do it please, please, please make storage of the passkey to the key file optional (so that it remembers the keyfile but you can choose if to be challenged for the password or have it stored.

Thanks for you encouragement.

Publickey is planned (#18). It won't have an option to store the key's password because, presumably, if you'd wanted to use it without a password you wouldn't have given it a password in the first place!

That said, we do plan (eventually) to support key agents such as pageant so you'll only need to enter the password once as long as the agent is running (#154).
