Thanks, I'll keep my eye out for issues. All of my .key files are shadow copies
for smartcards anyway so pw change is not an issue.
What about updating show copies? It looks like when scdaemon starts, they're
automatically created for new keys observed on the card. Is it a security risk
to update the shadow copies (e.g., blindly overwrite) every time scdaemon
starts? It's not as though I ever explicitly configured the keygrip -> card.
Or, would it be a risk or otherwise problematic to have the shadow copy contain
a list of cards?
