So far, smart card support is available for RSA, but not for Elliptic curves.
Yet meanwhile there are smart cards that (more or less) offer support for ECC.
Would be nice if XCA allowed for using these features of hardware security tokens.

Unfortunately, this requires supporting further PKCS#11 operations like CKM_EC_KEY_PAIR_GEN in lib/pkcs11.cpp . As far as time allows, I might help doing so.
