Its not terribly laborious. You don't need to restart the app to stop the read-only feature. You do need to close the .py script, change the pref, and re-open the .py script. I am thinking that this feature is mainly intended to be used on testing-room computers, where things should stay read-only basically all the time. I don't think a menu item is needed for this, but happy to add one if you want it.
