The background for my question is simply "what's in it for me if I use
such a card". Will the benefits outweight the drawbacks, and what are
in fact such drawbacks, if there are some?
Frankly, I find it very convenient to be able to use a simple PIN for
nearly all operations, and not the long and compilcated passphrase.
