I look forward to your feedback.

Yes.  And after it has a man page, examples, and more validation.
I expect before next release.

NTPsec going through similar discussions.  They have contrib, attic,
and more.

Only a subset of gpsd users use ubxtool, and only a small subset of
those can use gpssubframe.  Plus some a few others that have receivers
with subframe output.

I don't like packages that remove gpsd clients, like cgps, to separate
packages.  For gpssubframe it may make sense, but not my call.
