Ah great. I like this implementation. Reviewing the code it does not seem to 
introduce any risk and provide all the functionality required.

Could you explain briefly the steps to install (after the git pull).

May I also ask you for some help/pointer on a yubikey package I've done. I just 
need to do the packaging and it may save me some time if you were to give me 
few pointers...

Project is here... the doc state that it is packages, but it is not (yet)...
