[Ovmsdev] Feature request: secured charging

You may not even need to do the unlock first.  I haven't tried this yet from OVMS but I know that my Roadster beeps on the first lock received by the key fob, but then it honks every time you press the lock button after that.  So you might be able to just send a series of lock commands to coax some honking to occur.

Unfortunately charging will be interrupted almost every second time now, because some people disconnect the cable. It is very annoying and I don't understand why people would do that. But it happens more and more. And it is also likely that it is the same people doing it.
