[aprssig] Yet Another APRS Client is now available...

It's KISS-only, but it attempts to send the KISS ON and RESTART commands to switch over a TNC2. Alas, it doesn't put it back to command mode when it's done; is that a desirable feature?

Ah, ok!  That did it.
 
 Does this program support KISS?  I just got it fired up.  I'm in the port setup and I only see an option for SERIAL_TNC.  Is this KISS or the old dreaded command/converse scheme?
