It can be installed via apt-get and gpsd can be configured to start on boot. Or 
is there any problem so that it does not work this way?

I think NeronGPS is much better then TangoGPS, it's native app and we can save 
10 MB (packed). Maybe i am wrong, but the number of people that prefer 
TangoGPS over NeronGPS must be small and it is quite simple to install tango 
(one apt-get install).

Yup, but it wasnt working before too. I'd like to get multiplexing back, but 
it must be without bugs first and in v15 it was causing at least 2 bugs (one 
with Qtopia stuck in call screen - very annoying and nearly 100% reproducible 
after first boot and second is with GPRS - now it starts always, before you had 
to try several times).

So the plan is now to disable multiplexing and hopefully after it's fixed it 
will be back.
