[aprssig] Standalone APRS on Rasberry Pi? (OUTNET)

Ah, so you are looking for an end-user client that would either poll files or accept a real-time stream from the Outernet receiver software and report this APRS stream the same way a TNC or APRS-IS feed would be reported.
Well, YAAC can read files of APRS messages, although not poll them for real-time updates, and YAAC's log file format probably doesn't match a file Outernet would produce (although that could be added quickly once the file format was documented). Would the Outernet folks be willing to augment their receiver software to add a real-time socket feed that a client could connect to (similar to the TCP socket service in aprsc and other APRS-IS backbone server software? Then any Linux-compatible APRS end-user client could be used (since they all support APRS-IS).
