Gypsy is a GPS multiplexing daemon which allows multiple clients to access
GPS data from multiple GPS sources concurrently.
Without some sort of multiplexing system, a GPS device can only safely be
accessed by one client. In a server situation this may not cause any
problems, but on modern desktop which could potentially have multiple
location aware devices, this could be an issue.
