Well, so, on behalf of the legitimate user activation, let's get even
more efficient. IMHO, a direct message to the thief could be sufficient.
You know, something like: "This phone is a Neo1973 and as such is under
the protection of the world wide open-source hackers community. Please,
from now on, stop smoking, drop all weapons, and handle this device
*especially* carefully. Then, head {north,east,west,south} on this
street, take the second on your left and enter the {police
station,jail,tribunal,military installation} to confess your offence.
Immediate conformance to these instructions is expected before
appropriate retaliation is launched. (Appropriate countdown

Thought to something even simpler before the countdown: "Resistance is
futile." but maybe thieves need detailed explanations? (Plus, we should
*really* try to show off with the AGPS chipset.)
