I've already got that part working.  My program emulates a Garmin GPS for
testing purposes, and will send and receive position/velocity/time data,
decode waypoints, and so forth.  I just need the virtual serial port program
to avoid tying up two serial ports and a null modem cable.  If it works out,
it'll open up a lot more options for APRS mapping software, even if it's not
totally automated.
