I wrote a driver for the Novatel Superstar 2 a few years ago; perhaps
the binary protocol is similar enough to be used as the basis for a
new driver?

A quick look at the NMEA0183 driver suggests we have at least basic
support for attitude information, though I've not had a chance to
personally try it.

GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
