I'm going to put some thought into this over the holidays and perhaps
get some code written. Will certainly check out your existing code as
well. Can we come up with a base set of features that we would all
like to see? Anyone who has an iPhone should check out iBCNU as a
'fairly' good example. It has had its problems, but it a pretty good
piece of software now.

FWIW, I would like to see this kind of app also work with things like
google latitude, fireeagle and the like. A sort of general position
update app.
