Seems like a lot of work for zero gain.  gpsd tries to keep the
servers as simple as possible.  If the client wants to group things the
client should do so.

Well, I have a use-case for it. My use-case involves low-bandwidth networks on which every byte counts. Also, this pack mode communicates to a listener an as-complete as possible GPS state in a single packet.

Furthermore, from my point of view gpsd is the server, gps2udp is a simple client program of gpsd that performs a simple transformation and sends out the result.

I'm trying very hard to do the right thing here and upstream work we have.
