Hi Shawn.

That's really bad. Do you plan to implement pinpad-support?
Where can i find a wishlist for the CCID-Driver? Or start a petition?

What's the problem to give those APDUs to the Reader instead the

But that's needless in Applications or Situations where a Pinpad-
-Terminal is required. Like Secoder-Banking. Or when a customer
(card-owner) stands on the other Side of the Desk like eGK (German-
-Health-Cards), ePA (German eID), Clubcards, etc.

I know this list: <http://pcsclite.alioth.debian.org/supported.html>
So i thought if it's listed as a "supported" Cardreader, like the Cherry
ST-2000, SCM SCR532, Gemalto GemPCPinpad, etc. it even supports
the features like PIN Verification and PIN Modification.
