thanks for this little gem =)

I've added it to OE as openmoko-gps so it could find its way into the
feeds eventually.

I've also found a few problems:

- It is missing an icon ;)
- It is missing a .desktop file
- If /tmp/nmeaNP exists but gllin is not running, any access to that
file will hang, so will your app.

For now I added a .desktop using the Terminal icon
