Right.  gpg shall not know anything about smartcards.  It is now all up
to gpg-agent to decide whether a smartcard is to be used.  If gpg wants
to know whether the key is on a smartcard, it has to ask gpg-agent for
that information.  It is pretty likely that some stuff does not yet
work; there are still a few FIXMEs in the code.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
