One process change I would like to make is to have the user cd into the 
appropriate directory for running applications like this, even during 
testing.  Reduces mistakes, particularly when one part of the path is 
identical to the name of the application.

Either that or spell out the full path - since we are ostensibly still 
the default 'pi' user, it could just as well be

|# /home/pi/gpsd/gpsmon /dev/gpsd0||
|# /home/pi/gpsd/gpsd /dev/gpsd0
|# /home/pi/gpsd/ntpshmmon

But the simplicity of entering the directory where the executable is 
would be my preference.
