  i know it's in old packages, i mentioned that. i was just pointing
out the incongruity that the old packages feed is now, by default,
commented out, while openwrt wiki pages still refer to some of the
packages there without making that clear.

  and to clarify my other questions,

* is ugps meant to be an upgrade/alternative to gpsd?
* is mwan3 meant to be an upgrade/alternative to multiwan?
