Skyhook Geolocation with a Zipit Z2?

I've been tweeting the wifi access points that my Zipit can see.  It just occurred to me, I should be able to stuff that into the Skyhook API and get a decent latlong value.  Hrm...

Looks like I'll need to get python working on the Z2.  Another possibility would be to gather the base station MAC addrs and post them raw to a cgi-script elsewhere, letting my own server do the skyhook request (and SimpleGeo post).  That's cheating, tho.
