Auto Lock on Modify Entry

Please add the functionality "auto lock on modify" when clicking on the modify button. (That also implies the unlock after saving or cancelling.)

Additionally you could gray out the modify button while someone works on an entry.
If there is still someone who blocks an entry e.g. while being away from the computer, there is still the force unlock button.

We often have customers with the problem where people overwrite the changes of each other when working on the same file in a team.

People don't always click on the lock action manually and unlock it afterwards.

Controlling this feature via ssf(-ext).properties would be nice, too.
