Thank you, Grant.  That's just the information that I needed.  I can't
say that I agree with scdaemon being placed in the gpgsm package with
no reference to the fact.  Hopefully, someone will remedy this so that
no one else will need to ask where scdaemon is on a
Debian/Debian-based system.

Thanks again,
