Alright, so I'm starting in on this.

The plan is, as we discussed, for the spiceqxl_drv to create a fifo and 
relay the smart card messages through that.

A new program, spice-ccid, will read those messages, and exchange the 
appropriate protocol with pcscd, which should provide it through to 
whatever application needs it.  (I've written a dummy ccid driver, and 
it does all seem to work fine).

First question:  where should spice-ccid live?  Should that be part of 

I can try asking the pcsclite folks if they'll take it; no idea how 
they'll respond to that one.

Anyone have a strong opinion?
