Hopefully the developers are also reading this thread - and presumably there
is support for the plug in usb fingerprint readers also? There are already a
few BZs on this general area such as at 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=509148
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=506058
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=503898

But adding new bz for the issues discussed in this thread is at least going
to get direct attention...
