I have resisted doing this because I really think it is pointless.
The only reason sudo authenticates at all is to guard against a
lack of physical security. Using the ssh agent would not protect
against thins since the passphrase is only entered once. If you
don't want to enter a password in sudo, just turn off authentication
and rely on whatever method was used to login.
