I'd be willing to work on it, if it weren't for the fact that KisMAC 
does not currently work on my machine. (Or rather, MacJack causes it 
to lock up.)

I'd suggest that the first step is a program that puts a graphical 
front end on turning gpsd on and off, along with a menu for selecting 
the serial device it is supposed to be talking to.  There is Apple 
example code for enumerating all the serial devices on a machine 
which is a good start for this.  There does not currently seem to be 
Apple example code for a System Preferences panel, but people seem to 
be able to write them none-the-less, which is sort of where I thought 
this should go.
