Since you opened the door...

I think that leads to confusion since they both, at least for now, 
come from gpsd.  And until the gpsd_json driver has sane, documented,
defaults, I fear that people will try it first with gpsd.

Maybe: gpsd_shm, and gpsd_json.  Or: shm and json.

There could be other gpsd variants in the future.
