That is, accepting the autostart option _isn't_ necessary.  Thank
you.  So correct the template:

 - _Description: Start gpsd automatically on boot?
 -  Necessary for USB autodetection, but it also might be appropriate if the
 -  GPS receiver is permanently attached to this computer. Alternatively it
 -  can be started by running gpsd(8) manually.
 + _Description: Start gpsd automatically?
 +  If you accept this option, gpsd will be started automatically.
 +  Autodetection of USB GPS devices requires a running gpsd.

        sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
