CCID descriptor statistics: section

Article from the serie "CCID descriptor statistics"

Should work readers17968.32 %
Supported readers5922.52 %
Unsupported readers166.11 %
Disabled readers83.05 %

Readers in the Disabled list are either completly bogus or the reader manufacturer requested me to remove them so they are supported by another CCID driver.

If we ignore the readers in the "disabled" list we have:

A large part of the readers (70%) have not been tested by me. It is not a problem if the reader is working correctly. It is more problematic if the reader is bogus. If a user reports a problem I can identify as a bug in the reader then the reader is moved in the "Unsupported list" with a note about the problem.
