How about a GPS daemon similar to gpsd but with the capabiltiy to speak HTTP?
Would be nice if people making webapps could include a javascript source from the localhost that would give back an object with GPS info.

I've already written very lightweight implementations of this in Java and Python, however both rely on gpsd. I'm guessing one for the n810 could just call to the GPS APIs.

I'm sure there will be security concerns, but it should be easy to turn off and on, and wouldn't be a big deal for a mobile device. The daemon also doesn't need to give a highly accurate latitude and longitude to still be very useful.
