I'd like to nominate making sure that gpsd and ntpd can communicate cleanly 
in JSON mode.  I think the PPS case works.  I don't think the non-PPS case 
works yet, at least not as well as via SHM.

Is there a way to turn off SKY responses?  They don't contain any info 
directly useful for timing.  (They might contain signal quality info which 
could be useful for timing quality.)

For the wish list:
  I'd like to see a mode of gpsmon that displays the info from JSON mode.  
Possibly this would be better in a separate program.


Try pointing gpsmon at an instance of gpsd that is talking to 2 devices.  If 
one is in SiRF binary and the other is in NMEA mode, the display switches 
back and forth between modes.  (When I first saw this, I was thinking of 
weird timing bugs.  It took a while to notice that it was flipping modes.)

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
