easier management of the Fellowship smartcard

The FSFE wiki has details about manually configuring[1] the Fellowship

I've started a wiki[2] and discussion in debian-devel[3] about using a
Debian Live CD to run a clean-room environment (without network) with a
whiptail-based UI (similar to Debian installer, etc) for managing the
lifecycle of master keys and smartcards.  This would eliminate the need
to remember or look up command line instructions.

One use for such a Live CD is that it could be posted out to new fellows
so they can get started more quickly.

It would be interesting to get any feedback people have about the
workflow in the wiki[2].
