It should.  But I just added Skytraq to git head for next release, and I
did not get to checking/fixing gpsctl yet.

Well, when the Skytraq is NMEA mode it takes a while to go from 
NMEA0183 to Skytraq,  That needs to be looked at.

Yeah, and it shoulda worked, but new and untested.  You are on git head, 
right?  You likely are if you saw anything Skytraq related.

No, the code is likely missing something painfully obvious.  Certainly
untested, and should be before next release.

gpsctl need to detect Skytraq, set from nmea to binary modes and back, and
send arbitrary commands.  Then fancy stuff can be added.
