local key as smartcard *fallback*

When using keytocard, the keyring is informed that the key is now
stored on a smartcard... only (unless removed explicitly).

If the smartcard is unavailable (lost or whatever), is there an *easy*
way to tell the agent to automatically use the local key, if present ?

*If* the smartcard is not present,
*If* a local and password-protected version exists,
*Then* use it as a fallback.

I do understand that smartcard security depends on *not* having the
local key present.
But such a (more flexible) key lookup policy would still be useful in
some situations like for a smoother transition to smartcard or smartcard
used optionally on several computers, ...

Thank you.
