Actually I couldn't recall the multi-finger combination. It's useless
to me. I carry my JBR in a pants pocket and do not have the patience
to pull the thing out, contort both hands to lock or unlock and then
adjust the volume. I need to be able to do it by feel through the
fabric - like I do most other commonly used keystrokes.

As long as I'm wishing, I'd like two lock modes. One that locks the
whole keyboard and another that locks everything except the volume
keys. The latter would be wonderful to turn the volume up and down
without inadvertently skipping chapters in an audio book by hitting <<
or >>. Maybe a long keypress could partially lock and a really long
one would fully lock.

It's a shame that your improvements are (apparently) being rejected by
the core developers. They're obviously the result of lots of use. If
your code becomes unwelcome on the rockbox wiki, I have tons of web
space and would be more than happy to host it. I do agree with one
comment - you need to indicate revisions with at least a minor suffix
change. I called it 2.5.1.1 on my machine.
