No problem!

Still for decryption? I would assume that the prompt order for a
multi-recipient message is the order of the headers. I haven't
confirmed this, though. I did just encrypt a message with --recipient
flags in different orders, and the resulting files seemed to contain
the signatures in the order I passed them. However, I'm not sure if
that's specified behavior or just the way my GPG install works.

I'm afraid I'm unfamiliar with smartcards, as I don't use one myself.

Best of luck,
