FWIW: There used to be a remote feature in scdaemon (RAPDU) to access
card services from remote using an ssh connection.  It actually worked
once upon a time but it was not finished due bankrupt of the customer.

The main problem with secret sharing is obviously the user interface and
the very reason why we do not yet have this in GnuPG.  There was an
interesting project which might be useful for ideas:;a=summary

What are the use cases you have in mind?
