(118/207) 2812926 - "Read only" command line option

I think a "read only" command line option would be a useful addition. Anyone else? I would use it on a daily basis, myself.

What would the "read only" option mean exactly? Would it:
- Just prevent modifying the files opened as buffers
- Prevent creation of new files in the directories containing these files (e.g. setting a jEdit marker causes a file named "<filename>.marks" (or similar) to be created in the same directory, so if new files cannot be created, markers cannot be used)
- Prevent deleting / renaming files using the File System Browser menu

Just prevent modifying the files opened as buffers. But just the files specified on the command line. Does that make sense?
