Firefox has a patch to implement geolocation using GeoClue, so you'd
want to make sure that you don't end up with an infinite loop. :)
Directly supporting the various methods that browsers would use (the
REST API to Google Latitude, etc) would be a preferable way of doing
this in my opinion -- embedding a web browser into GeoClue seems
overkill to me.
