They should be trivial to produce though, if there was a budget for it,
especially given the relatively big amount of cash debian has on the spi bank

A special kind of token designed for our uses, with an optional braille
display for example. Done as a open-source hardware project, with open source
hardware design tools. That would be a worthy project, and the open sourceness
of it could both be an example of open source hardware, and improve the
computer security generally.
