As the original author of gpspipe I'm surprised to see any serial code
sneak in there at all.  If I had been awake I would have protested
at the time.  That code does nothing that an stty and a pipe could not
do WAY better.

Given that someone snuck it in, if you are going to fix it, then
fix it right.  That means letting the user set any speed from the
comment line, not jjust 4800 or 9600.  Both are way to slow for any
modern GPS to send all the data they want to send.

Plus, any code submissions need matching doc updates.
