Yes, you can use the Assuan protocol to directly talk to scdaemon via
gpg-agent.  GPGME has support this, albeit not documented.
gpa/src/cardman.c uses this feature.  For testing you can employ
gpg-connect-agent, for example:

  gpg-connect-agent 'scd serialno' /bye



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
