From statewatch.org:

France says protect free movement with mass fingerprinting, face scans and entry-exit logs
France has proposed extending the EU's proposed "smart borders" systems from non-EU nationals to all EU nationals and residents as well, a move which would require fingerprinting, face scans, systematic database searches and entry and exit logging for everyone entering the EU. The smart borders proposals are one of many items on the agenda of the JHA Council meeting today (8 October).
Under the Commission's 2013 smart borders proposals (which are soon to be redrafted), a new database known as the Entry/Exit System (EES) would require the fingerprinting of all non-residents entering the Schengen area, with the aim of making it easier to calculate and detect who has "overstayed" their visa entitlement. A Registered Traveller Programme (RTP), for the vetting of certain travellers before they reach EU borders, would also be introduced, along with amendments to the Schengen Borders Code. [1]

It was also in our local paper, but we now get the internet version on tablet- and OH has tablet with him elsewhere at the mo.
Perhaps it's only for airports.
Entry and exit logging is basically impossible with (open) land borders... can't see how that could work on any Swiss land border, though I can imagine the length of the queues to get in and out!
