key length for smart card key generation

I am able to use the gpg2 --edit-card to generate a 2048 bit secret key
on the card and the stub in the local key ring. Encrypt/Decrypt
functionality seems to be working.
I read two other old posts on this list that seem to indicate that this
is all gnupg supports:
* You cannot import existing secret keys to the card
* You cannot choose different key lengths for the keys
Is that correct? Do I need to use a different tool to put 4096 bit
keys on my card? Can anyone recommend which (free/linux/unix) tool to use to
manage keys on the smart card?
(When I try to use the gpg2 --edit-key, and then keytocard, I get an
error saying importing keys is not supported).
