Fyi, after a year I decided to give this a try.  It works fine in
Debian Squeeze (installed with the posted deb packages).  I've got it
talking to a TH-D7A(G) in kiss mode, and it's connected to a Keyspan
USB to serial adapter hanging off a little Acer "Revo" 1600 NetTop
computer - basically a very small desktop computer that uses a netbook
motherboard and an Intel Atom CPU.  I like the logging - very valuable
when first getting the software up and running.  Nice work - something
small running in the background is exactly what I wanted.  Also,
thanks to the people on this and the Xastir list that have pointed out
that Keyspan usb to serial adapters are Linux friendly.
