I had one (ElG) subkey before I started using a smartcard. Is it impossible to 
combine the old secret subkey and the smartcard keys?

It seems so to me. I have to delete the secret keys in order to make gpg use 
the smartcard. But after that I cannot import the old subkey andy more.

I should be able to use it by using seperate key rings though.
