For those of you that haven't noticed, I've added a SerialPort 
transport with some help from Itamar.  It's dependent on pyserial 
(http://pyserial.sf.net/), and currently supports posix and Jython.  
It'll eventually support win32.

I've done two GPS protocols, NMEA 0183 (almost all receivers support 
this) and Rockwell Zodiac (for the DeLorme Earthmate, which doesn't).  
There's other protocols for Trimble and Garmin receivers, but they 
support NMEA.

There is a new gpsfix example in doc/examples, and I've refactored the 
MouseMan example to use the new SerialPort transport.. however, I don't 
own any serial mice, so someone else is going to have to test it.
