That is not necessary, since I will also need GPS data. I just wondered 
if it would be a good idea to add NMEA messages that have nothing to do 
with GPS to the NMEAReceiver, which is in the package t.p.gps. This 
seems to be misleading. 

But tearing nmea.py apart and moving parts of it to different packages 
looks like much work - not something I'd like to tackle right now :-). 
Maybe I'll just create a subclass of NMEAReceiver and add the necessary 
messages there for now.

It's kind of hard to understand what this repository is about. The 
README file looks like a copy of the README for Twisted 8.2.0 ;-).
