Well I'll have to peek and see if it spawns a new gpsd thread for every 
new connection to it or not, but I think we're missing the point.

Okay, having this be UDP based would be neat, and more scaleable and 
flexible, but my point to begin with is that GPSd is out there, and 
while its obviously not a very polished protocol, its there.

Theres other apps out there that are aware of it and interoperate with 
it, so instead of reinventing the wheel, lets try and get Kismac to work 
with it.

If GPSd does support multiple simultaneous connections (which I believe 
it does), then it shouldn't be a big deal to get this working, right?
