What's with the quotes and the dumbing.. Trying to convince this old

I'm well aware, but thanks.

I'm not sure where you propose that this checkbox be placed.
In a dialog presented _before_ the unlocking takes place?

Of course, we all do.

Ok, I guess that that could qualify as fair critique (still not
entirely sure what's being critizised though).

I think it depends on how you define "lead the user through another process".
If it was just a A)bort, R)etry dialog with a checkbox that said STEAL
or FORCE, I'd personally be happy with it.

the above statement?
