[aprssig] perl iGate

That might work, but it's not a fully functioning IGate.  Even without a 
filter, the APRS-IS server will be sending you data that will be backing 
up somewhere on the $t socket.  You'll need to read that as well or 
it'll eventually grind to a halt when your buffers fill up.

And you need to selectively gate some, but not all, of the stuff that 
you receive from the APRS-IS server back to local RF to be a 
fully-functioning IGate.

Have you looked at aprsc?  And I've seen on the javAPRSSrvr that Pete's 
working on getting that running on the Pi.

And just what doesn't aprx like about the D72?  You might need to put a 
few commands in there to get the D72 into KISS mode, but i'll be a much 
more functional IGate with a little bit of effort.
