Very adventurous types might want to try today's checkin (rev 35).

Zone scanning no longer happens at plugin startup.  Instead, there is a tab on the alarm panel device which you can use to view and add zones.  A button on the tab scans the panel for zones, and you can choose which ones to add.  They will get created on a Luup engine reload.

This should help end the long startup times after a Luup engine reboot, and the annoying habit of zones to migrate out of their assigned rooms because the Luup engine crashed mid-enumeration of child devices.  I'd love to see how well it copes with a larger alarm system; mine's only got three zones so it's hardly a stress-test.

Programming folks might want to look at this plugin for an example of how to get JavaScript to call Lua code, start an asynchronous job, wait for it to finish, and get a result back from it.
