Once again I think I should blame my head-cold for not making very much
sense :)

Ultimately I want to be able to support the lockdown of things for which
no explicit lockdown key exits (because maintainers don't want to add
them). This can be achieved by marking the key(s)/value(s) as mandatory,
something that can only be done under Sabayon (or Pessulus as root).

For those meta lockdown keys that already exist I would want the user
interface to not expose both the lock and checkbox but just the
checkbox. Setting this would thus set the key value *and* make it

Does that make more sense?
