[aprssig] Some obscure APRS client questions

But again Bob, all of these are for the most part dead not having been 
updated in 5-10 years in many cases, and in the very near future will 
not run on the majority of machines.  Providing backward compatibility 
to import the old structures as Lynn does makes sense because people 
will eventually be forced away from current clients, but from the here 
and now sense of things it makes a lot more sense to use a format which 
can also be used in other systems with minimal conversion as we have 
reached the point where positioning files are standard in the real world 
beyond the APRS point of view.
