several GPG smartcards connected at the same time

I am wondering if it is possible to have several GnuPG Smartcards
Let's assume I have several smartcards, 
one has a PGP key of identy1 at, the other of
identity2 at

If I now try to decrypt something which is encrypted for
identity2 at would the gpg-agent/scdaemon be smart enough to
ask the correct smartcard with the right identity/private key?

Thanks a lot
