Ah, ok.
The above, combined with your status bar idea, would repulse me much
less than doing it the "run as" way.

A fair goal, considering the number of menu items in the TSVN cascaded menu!

But there's got to be a better way than to put the functionality in
keyboard shortcuts..

Joseph Galbraith said that he'd hate to have a dialog pop up every
time 'lock' or 'release' is clicked if there's no need for it, I
agree. But we're going to need a dialog anyway for telling the user
that one or more lock operations failed. I think the "steal" option
would fit nicely in there?
