Like Kyle pointed out, you'll never be able to get a crypto system with no user interaction. I think it's a good idea to go for little user interaction (I get tired of typing in my 20+ character passphrase sometimes -- it would be nice to have the passphrase manager tied into the login manager). I'll agree that bad UI makes crypto less widespread than it should be (e.g. people emailing corporate secrets in plaintext). But I doubt that if we could make a crypto system with the absolute minimal user interaction, then people would start using it. Unless you could come up with some "killer feature". Like spam prevention. ;-)
I have the "bad habit" of sharing passphrases. Yeah, it's weaker, but I don't have to worry about remembering so many different secrets.
