Sorry, there is nothing to fix.  Ed25519 is an algorithms which you
should not split up into hashing and signing part.  For OpenPGP we need
to be able to separate this.

Further, and probably most important, you won’t be able to do this with
a smartcard or any other token - passing the entire data to be signed
through the token is not possible due to limited I/O bandwidth.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
