As we've always said, we're more than happy to work with other projects 
and with Loadstone being free and open-source we welcome anybody anywhere 
contributing software patches to improve functionality and the experience 
of Loadstone GPS users.

We constantly get feature requests but very rarely do we receive software 
patches implementing features.
