I'm trying to make $GPGGA the default, it is a much more informative 
sentence (using 'mode 2' in the server statement specifies this):

It contains the current time (hms), position (ddmm.mmmm), nr of visible 
sats, DOP etc, which makes it easy to write a little perl script to 
process the clockstats file to gather all sorts of interesting statistics.
