So, basically it's just about sensitivity and not accuracy? If so, then it 
not be that much of a problem ;)

As I understand, you are part of the dev team, aren't you? If you are, then 
you tell me if it is possible to make gpsd put the receiver in NMEA mode 
instead of
SiRF binary in some future release?
