You can do that with a trivial shell wrapper:

function ssh-add() { if [ -z "$@" ];then /usr/bin/ssh-add `cat
~/.ssh/keylist`; else /usr/bin/ssh-add $@; fi ; }

then list your keys in ~/.ssh/keylist.  ssh-add does not currently
read a config file and I don't think it should.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
