Add updatable tool status

As plant status, add a tool status to keep information about the latest mounted tool (or unmount). This status could be updated from a sequence when mountin/unmouting a tool. Coupled with IF statement in sequence, this would allow to recover from a failure and restart properly, for example umount the tool or mount a tool if not yet mounted.

This feature is under development and will be included in the FarmBot OS v8 release, along with a handful of other big new features. The way we’ve implemented it is with a new Sequence Command named MARK AS, which you’ll be able to use to systematically mark a tool as mounted, or a plant to have a certain status.

Stay tuned, we’ll get this out as soon as we can!

The ability to set custom statuses was released in FarmBot OS v10.
