not *directly* but...

push in the card (beep ... boop)
	cardctl eject (beep)

when you're ready,
	cardctl insert (beep beep)

I usually carry the card plugged in, but hop between 3 or 4 nets a lot
and sometimes others, many behind firewalls.  (Thus my sig.)  WHat gets 
me is when I forget to issue the eject command and there's no net around 
then startx hates me (because the yutzy little script wants to reverse 
resolve my hostname, or something).  Sigh.
