Open Sesame - auto garage door opener

Problem: I gotta push da button when I get home to open my garage door. Why?
Solution: It seems, with the ready availability of wireless controls that my car can tell my garage door to open (and close). When I drive home, approach the garage, and get close enough that it's pretty obvious I'm going in, the garage door can open. Technically it's no challenge - we have wireless openers - we just need the car to automatically transmit the open command. We have key controls to unlock our, and only our, car - so we can have secure openers. The opener can also be smart enough to close the door when you leave.
While I'm at it, I want a smarter, wireless car interface - but that's another posting.
