Description

As proposed by Freemor on the mailing list [1]:

Tho it can be disabled by killing the systemd or initd service that run it. I
strongly feel creating a neutered version that either fails to return any
location (preferable) or returns a benign location (like south pole, Middle of
the Pacific Ocean, etc) is preferable as it would

1.) Give a safe drop in replacement. (Won't rat you out even if it is
accidentally enabled).

2.) Sends a clear message showing that we think the default behaviour is broken
and requires fixing.

3.) Doing the work to create a build recipe for a neutered geoclue will server
to show people that such is possible. And also serve to make it easier for
other RYF distros to benefit from our (by which I mean mostly my, unless
other feel heavily motivated to join in) work on neutering it.

The work done so far can be found in [nonprism-testing] [2].

A first testing report: #2580
