[aprssig] Rotor control

Someone on the Yahoo APRS list was asking about using APRS to control a
rotor and track a station automatically for ATV.  Does APRSdos do this?  I
thought I heard something about APRSdos and rotor control.

Second, is there any sort of serial interface standard for rotor
controllers?  If not, then what's most common?  If there's anything out
there with a relatively simple interface, it wouldn't be hard to add rotor
tracking to the Tracker2.  It's already got the math needed to calculate
distance and bearing, so it wouldn't take much code to have it send rotor
control commands to the second serial port to track a designated station.
