Do you have something specific in mind? I tried "gpg2.exe --card-edit"

fair enough (FYI: there's a GPLed source for pcsc to access the
rainer card readers, so there may be a way to add support for it...),

I assume this means a little bit more than just a little contribution
from a little user. I would be willing so offer 50/100€ (surely not
enough for 4 people) if I know it would help to resolve some issues, but
surely not 500/1000€. I've seen only the possibility to pay via paypal.

(either a normal transfer inside Germany, or via IBAN/BIC)?
