Johanna suggested that Lino should also read nationality of a Belgian EID card holder. The problem with this is that this data is not very normalized. Lino uses a field nationality which is a pointer to lino_xl.lib.places.Country. For a French citizen the value on the eid card can be “Français”, “Française”, “Frans”, “Franzose”, “Französin”, “French” depending on the sex and the issuing municipality.

As a compromise I added a new database field lino_xl.lib.beid.BeIdHolder.nationality_text. (#3681)
