I don't really see how that is cumbersome if you have an alias for tag and for commit that each specify the key you want?

As an aside, what's the reason for not signing the commits with the key on the card? I sign all my commits with the key stored on my Gnuk. What is kinda annoying though is if you set commit.gpgsign = true, as it will then even sign git stash etc. and ask you to enter the PIN all the time. Which is why I have an alias git ci for git commit -S, as I only want to sign commits, not temporary state.
