	Not quite as much as all that.  I mean I am satisfied that
 Debian is performing its main, and most important goal and reason
 for being: providing a stable operating environment for my cluster of
 machines, which are slowly converting to running mandatory access

 don't see any reasons to invest in smart cards.
