shutting down gpsd backend

 My current problem is this: I'd like to shut down gpsd backend either
automatically when there's no use or manually. This is pretty important
on mobile devices (battery- and memory-wise), and also quite easy now
that libgpsbt is in use: it takes care of shutting gpsd down if there's
no-one using it.

 So, how should it be done? Automatic shutdown doesn't seem possible --
we don't really know if anyone is listening on the
current_position_changed-signals or not...

 A manual shutdown should be possible, but I don't see a way -- nothing
in the C-wrapper actually ever calls the shutdown method.

Any ideas how this should be done?
