Yes.  --card-status should also be sufficient for this.  However
--edit-card has the fetch command which retrieved the public key using
the stored URL.  Some people reported that this feature does not work
for them; however I have not yet been abale to duplicate the problem.

You mean that you see pub and then sec and sbb?  That seems to be a
bug.  We use the sec listing fucntion internally because this also
displays the number of the card which is useful if the subkeys are
stored on different cards.  If that disturbs you, please open a bug in
