Even though I like your suggestion to make it somehow easier to lock and
open a file, I really don't like the idea of adding yet another context
menu entry. There already are way too much for my taste (I often have to
look for the command I need in those too many entries).

Do you have any other ideas on how to implement this (without an
additional menu entry)?
