[aprssig] User created findU pages

Maybe I'll change it to use shorter "$speed" style variables this weekend,
if I get a chance.

I realize the "aprs(...)" structures are long, but since they correspond
directly with the xml paths, they're automatically added any time the xml
spec changes, and no routine was needed to parse for individual variables,
etc.  So the replace script would almost never need to be updated.

But, I also realize that they can mess up formatting enough that it's hard
to see what the final output is gonna look like while developing the page.

They won't be quite as short as just $speed since they'll need to
differentiate between things like $wind_speed_mph, $position_speed_kph, etc.
(any suggestions along this line would be welcome...)  I'll see if I can do
that this weekend.

Cool, works great, other than the variable names exactly what I had
