Although it's OpenPGP card protocol implementation (not OpenPGP
implementation), Gnuk only supports 2048-bit RSA keys.

Key length is an important factor, indeed.  But, I'd say, I prefer
putting my 2048-bit RSA private keys on FST-01 with Gnuk, rather than
holding longer keys on PC.  And it's my practice for this three years.
