MOB Feature - quetzal - 03-06-2019

Hello,

It will be good if we have a feature on pypilot to stop the boat, like in nke pilot.
I think a signal-k sentence to stop the boat can make this:
 - if there is a windvane, the boat face the wind
 - if there is no windvane, the boat go to heave to

Il would allow to use some cheap bluetooth tracker, and, with a separate process, when the link is lost, the process stop the boat. In solo sailing, this will potentially allow a man overboard to come back in the boat.
