Oh, that is a pretty old file with the last Chnages from 2009.

According to the gpg NEWS this didn't chnaged.  I would say mark it as

We will definitely not do any updates for smartcard in gpg 1.4 anymore.
Thus this is also a WONTFIX.

Indeed?  This might have been fixes since 1.4.2 - I have not checked.

Mark them as and also add a note to the top of the TODO that the file
might be out of date and that current feature requests can be found at
