It would need a bit of work I think -- the mauku support was one of the
tests I used for the API, and IIRC I did find some omissions that I then
fixed (adding async method calls was one I think). Also it currently
uses master provider and manual provider, and I think that's not the
best option for mauku
I do have this on my todo-list but unfortunately being on that list
doesn't always move things forward (sorry)... If you want to take over
this, I'd be really happy to help you out and explain the options in detail.

Shamefully it is not in a repo yet. I'll take care of that ASAP (which
may translate to next week since I'll be as far away from a laptop as I
can on midsummer weekend).
If you're interested in pushing one of these things, catch me on IRC
(jku on #geoclue on gimpnet) or jabber (jku at jabber.org)
