There are two problems: 

There is no common interface under Windows to access a pinpad.  This
needs to be done using proprietary driver extensions.

Under GNU/Linux and other systems supported by libusb, we have the
code ready to access the pinpad of some readers.  However, we need
design an internal API to test whether a read has a pinpad and whether
it shall be used.

Eventually there will be support for it but it will take a while.
