Hrm.  According to the documentation I have here, '--use-agent' will
first try to contact the agent, and will then ask for a passphrase if
that fails.

I don't have access to the agent to test, but it seems that it may be
possible to have this accept a passphrase from Gnus as well as trying
the agent.   Just a simple matter of programming -- which is, of course,
easy for me to volunteer the original poster. ;)
