Xastir has no such indication on the screen and doesn't keep track
of igates in its internal database.  No user has asked for that
capability either that I can recall.  I just did a search through
the feature requests:   Nobody has submitted one therefore this must
not be all that important to our users.  That's our gauge.

Sure.  I'll try to get that in there soon.  So far I've noted that
UI-View, WinAPRS, and APRSdos have it.  Any others?
