[aprssig] Automatic Voice RFelay System (AVRS) and ALLSTAR

Perhaps a new APRS message could be defined specifically to beacon such gateways with the relevant parameters (most of which are in the standard position message anyway). Then we wouldn't need a back-door URL to get the data; AVRS could just use a type-filtered feed to get all the gateway beacons (regardless of which net they are on).

Just my $.02.

Will this info be generally available on the APRS-IS so we can easily
bring it to the RF domain without doing Internet magic...   (Yes - I
know APRS-IS == Internet but there is a subtle difference...)
