How should I detect if I've got a reader/smartcard combo?

I think that I have something similar problem. I am using a USB Token
which I develop for myself.
My current solution was posted here:
This is a patch to keep scdaemon running well.
These days, I rather think another approach would be better.
* scdaemon is going to exit when it detects reader unplugged
* gpg-agent handles terminate of scdaemon
* gpg-agent once again does "learn" when user accesses the card
In fact, I do like the following in my experiments manually:
(1) identify scdaemon and kill it
(2) let gpg-agent to "learn" again to invoke scdaemon again
$ gpg-connect-agent learn /bye
