Plenty of people move existing keys to smart cards. Generating a key
on-board is more secure, but then you're left dealing with two keys.
The old software one, and the new smart card one. And if you've still
got an old software key to deal with, then what's the benefit of a smart
card anyway? And the new key doesn't have any of your existing signatures.
