Does the SCM SCR3320 work with GnuPG?

Hello list,

Does anybody know if the SCM SCR3320 USB card reader works with GnuPG under
Linux? Specifically, I was thinking of buying the "ChipDrive MyKey 2" from
Conrad[1] in The Netherlands. It's only 20 euros.

If you look at the product page for the SCR3320[2] and compare the photo
with the product page for the MyKey[3], it looks like a different stick. I
hope this is just a change in the housing, because the MyKey description
still says it's the SCR3320.

I want to use it in combination with an OpenPGP v2 card, although I'm also
considering cutting up my v1 card to fit in the SIM size.

I don't think it is relevant, but I'm running Debian Squeeze/testing with
stock kernel and stock gnupg. But this can be changed if necessary, it's
just convenient (I mean the kernel and gnupg can be custom compiled, not
changing the distro).

Thank you for your time,

Peter Lebbing.
