That's exactly what i've suspected: Whenever some security gadgets are sold
commercially, someone allways knows workarounds. Larger quantity gives
greater risk.

Call it paranoia, or general (dis)belief in human moral, i've allways
thought that the obvious NON-STANDARD "bug-off" flashing light (wich doesn't
have to be ugly), with immobilizer-interventions created by your mind in
your own "accent", gives more security than any known immobilizer.
