ssh,card: "Use-for-ssh:" (was: OpenPGP.3) keys should be on the list even when card is not available
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Currently, upon REQUEST_IDENTITIES, gpg-agent returns keys available on card, and keys listed in .gnupg/sshcontrol.

To have more clear semantics with Prompt field and Use-for-ssh (in future), it's good for OpenPGP.3 keys (as default) to be included always for REQUEST_IDENTITIES, regardless of if it's available on card or not.

Having "Use-for-ssh" flag now, experience shows that including OpenPGP.3 keys by default is not convenient.

Users can add "Use-for-ssh" flag, if they want.
