I expected te Python client to be as well behaved as the C client.  A
bad assumption.

I hacked a fix for xgps and xgpsspeed version issues.  And added version
checks to cgps.  A real fix would require making the Python client
library as smart as the C client library.

Check it out.

Along the way, I see there is no way for the C clients to see the
expected API versions.  Something else to fix in 3.19~dev.

Any other release blockers?
