This may not be workable. p11-kit does only the parsing of the URL but
does not pass info to the underlying module or so. Thus even if it
could see v-remote-fd=5, I don't think it could do anything useful with
it (except of course setting an environment variable).

For module-path, the story is the same, but in that case applications
and libs that use it (such as gnutls) most likely will support it
directly once p11-kit can parse it.
