Hello Astron

It shall be well understood that "protect" will toggle with "unprotect" 
depending on the protection status of the sheet, right?

Also, just a simple question: If we all agree here to implement this 
modification, what is the next step? Submit this proposal to the ESC, 
for blessing? Provide a wiki page / bugzilla entry of an "easy hack" (I 
guess this is an easy hack)?..

(Just anxious to move forward)
