Auto Index for Spatial data #125

It would be a big time saver if created nodes with lat and lon properties would get added automatically to the spatial index (maybe optionally). Because it is not clear, if a node gets added via REST and one forgets to add it to the index explicitly, when we later try make a e.g. "withinDistance" query which in turn should return this node, but since the query is correct we assume the result is also correct, but actually isn't.
i thought that it maybe is possible when working with the node_auto_index feature?

But thats a workaround in my opinion because it would also disable the possibility for other auto indexes.


Here is a gist with all necessary steps
I have also added an issue to neo4j directly because i think it is not only related to the spatial plugin: neo4j/neo4j#2048
