No quarantees that it stays that way.

Fair enough, as a start.

I can't debug what I can't see.  AFAIK, there are no gpsd example clients
that use WAATCH_RAW, so you may be right that work needs to be done on the
Python part.

gpsd is well supported on 32 bit arm.  Every distro has it.  If you are
rolling your own OS you already know you are on your own.  If you can't
spend 30 minutes to set up a cross-dev, or a Raspberry Pi, then that is
your choice.
