Most people does not have a Smart Card reader and Smart Cards daemon only takes
space. On the other hand, people having it have to find an un-intuitive

I am not sure, what would be the best solution?

1. Run it every time.

2. Run it every time, but make all steps to exclude pcsc-lite from basic
installation. Now it is introduced by dependency chain: openssh -> libopensc2
-> opensc -> pcsc-lite into "Extended basic system" pattern

3. Try to detect it. If it is a detectable reader, use HAL magic to start it.
(Note that pcscd is not ready to become a HAL helper).

4. Use an install time magic.

5. Handle it as a part of a new YaST GUI (reqested by FATE#302132).

Ludwig, what do you think? I would prefer 2. + magic hardware supplements,
which will auto-select proper packages, if the hardware is present.
