[Bf-funboard] Lock-Object per Layer

I while ago I posted the feature suggestion about how
to lock layers where some objects are, while working
on other objects in another layer/s, like in LightWave
where half bottom layer can be selected and still
visual, but not editable...

I wonder why no one wanted to reply to this? Is it
hard to understand what I am trying to say or doesn't
anyone thinks this is a very good feature? 

would be nice to know why no one haven't yet replied
to my nice suggestion :)

I hope you dont get mad at me cutting and pasting the
old post, I just cleaned my inbox a while back, and my
bf-funboard list isn't older than 17th of July 2003,
but here is the link too:

ps. I posted this again since I saw haunt_house
mentioned it (locked layers, old suggestion from me)
in a late debate about rotoscoping

Hey all at BF-Funboard!

This is my (Sten Sjöberg aka "ztonzy") first post and
suggestion to this mailinglist, and I hope I am doing
this corret and that you like my idea.

Well here goes nothing...

I have felt many times when working in a 3D scene that
when I want to see multiple objects and at the same
time only work on One object, so what I would like to
suggest is a feature about how to Lock Objects to
their positions and Lock them out from Editmodes, or
maybe select what You can edit in lockmode or not. (I
hope this make sence)

I would like to show some mock-ups, but I dont know
how to make any good ones, but I wanted to plant the
idea first to hear what feedback I get from this. 

Some initial idea would be similar maybe to LightWave,
where you can select "half-layers", so when the bottom
of the layers for each object is selected they are
shown in black wireframe, as non-editable, but they
are still there, and you can continue working on the
main object without accidently edit those that are in

Another idea would be if you could select a object and
have a shortcut option in W-key where you tell the
object being "non-editable" and/or in editbuttons (F9)
where you can setup all edit features/functionallity-

So this is my first start for this edit- or
noneditable feature, so please tell me if you like
this suggestion or not, and if it is an old idea I
have not yet discovered.
