My idea was to not have to install gpsbabel on these machines too. But if this 
would work it would be even better, since this would enable josm to import 
almost any gps-tracklog.

The primary idea was to add some simple lines to josm to also be able to read 
NMEA-tracks and store them internally in the gpx structure. After reading 
these tracks the gpx-upload of josm could also upload them the same way as 
regular gpx files.
