there is a Github issue: https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/415
+ a branch with the implementation:

For now:
- upsmon can react on the ALARM notify type, as with other events, and
- I've also fixed the CGI to expose the ALARM flag, which was not done.

A possible improvement would be to send the content of ups.alarm, but that
requires more thinking and time.
And the current implementation already points at this data.

@Jon: would you be able to test this branch and ack? (including the "covers
(or not) my needs...)
