[Ovmsdev] OVMS as Antithft/Alarm system

As the server does not know where the App device is, this is more an App 
side feature.

The firmware does not need to be changed because it already supports 
remote stopping of the car by using the LOCK command. You can already do 
that now, but you need to do so manually.

So first step would be a distance alarm, second step would be an 
automatic LOCK on alarm.

Sounds pretty simple... I'll have a look at it.
