I have made a patch to support 3rd party smart-cards with GPG using
PKCS#11 interface.

In the mean time I have abandoned the development, however another kind
individual has picked up from where I have left. In a private
communication he has said to make it work with Cryptoflex 32k and
PKCS#11 drivers from OpenSC and from the MUSCLE project.

We both believe that the most useful usage scenario is master key on the
smart-card with subkeys on the disk, as usual.

He has said to post the updated patch to this mailing list when he
polishes it. I think it won't be too long.
