1) dig around on trimble.com - there's a link to iQSource.zip which
may be useful
2) rip some code from gpsd - we can decode a fair number of the
packets, and there's a lot of machinery you can reuse.

I think I ordered early enough that sometime in the coming weeks a
thunderbolt will be headed my way, after that i can see about making
gpsd do the right things. already i know i need to do auto parity
detection - we assume TSIP is 8O1, which may not be true in the case
of the thunderbolt. Given some of this past week's list traffic, I
think Trimble goofed if they decided to go to 8N1.


GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
