I'd like our antitheft support to be more of a "feature" which G1G1
users could elect to enable, if they like.  This involved making it
much more visible and configurable, most likely putting it in the
control panel.  The idea is if you are taking a trip or leaving home
for a few days, you could "turn on theft-deterrence" before you go,
get some added tracking/remote-kill features, and then turn it off
later when you get home.

buttons: ticket #1502, ticket #6428

    * Revoke root capabilities when booted with security enabled: ticket #7562
