if you all want to have gpsd integration, i am probably going to put it 
into kismac. however i will just be busy the next two weeks. if someone 
else wants to write this feature, it would also be fine with me, 
however i changed a lot in the gps code, so write me a mail and i can 
give you my internal code....
