I just read the great news on twitter and I'd like to share them:

"Thanks to dozents of sponsors we raised Euro 2000 to patch OpenSC for 
full Crypto Stick (and OpenPGP Card) support.
Now you can use the following applications with the Crypto stick, for 
Firefox web browser: Other than with passwords, some web sites 
(http://www.crypto-stick.com/en/certificate-authentication) allow users 
to login via client certificates which provides a better security."

As I've got my own OpenPGP Card in my pocket, I'll try to use WebID with 
it as soon as the new OpenSC release is ready.
