Very well put. I'd like to take back my suggestion for all the
checkboxes. :)

How about this, Steve.. just keep things as simple as possible for the
initial 1.2 release and see what kind of feedback you get. Adding a
"force" checkbox to the Unlock dialog should be sufficient.

And I wholeheartedly agree with Molle in that altering the behavior of a
GUI by right-clicking versus shift-right-clicking is really, really bad.
Having to use a combination of keyboard+mouse for a given action is
annoying enough for me; I can only imagine how bad it must be for
someone who is disabled. (Yes, I realize there are examples of this in
Windows, but none that I can think of where there isn't some alternative
way to do it with either the mouse *or* keyboard but not both...
CTRL+drag copies instead of moves, but this is also possible with a
right-drag only).
