>Laptop being stolen: Certainly for normal users, yes. Don't let that happen. But you can protect yourself by moving funds to new addresses and deleting the old address keys. Poor man's forward secrecy. Since no one will probably do that, yeah .... all bets are off.

Heh, thanks, I appreciate your honesty! :)

I guess it's a bit like the problems with trying to get mass adoption of PGP; the tech's there, but trying to get Joe Public to use it without missing any of the vital steps and not messing any of them up is difficult at best.

For me, it's one of those "last, great"-levels of problem to solve: creating privacy tech that regular people who don't know or care about the specifics can use reliably and not mess up because they don't know and/or care.
