No. fso-gpsd running or not is not what counts. fso-gpsd is just one client
for the framework, there may be others.

This is correct, _if_ fso-gpsd happens to be the only client for the
framework. There may be others. Only if the last client releases the GPS
resource, the framework will shut down GPS.

This is using the org.freesmartphone.Usage interface, see
docs.freesmartphone.org -- yes I realize some introductionary material is
missing. I promise to work on that after milestone5.
Hope that helps,
