Again: Feel free to provide one.  The only thing you need is libassuan
to connect to gpg-agent.  libassuan is even under LGPL so you can use
it with any kind of application - just put it into a shared library.

If something should be missing in gpg-agent to implement this, I will
help by adding the required facilities.  However, I don't have the
time to write a pkcs#11 library for gpg-agent/scdaemon for free.  If
this is that important for you and you don't want to do it yourself,
well ask me at my company address.
