How can we improve SQL Source Control?

Option to disable object locking from the GUI

We have found that Source Control object locking can cause severe lag and even instability in SSMS for distant servers. The additional lag affects the SSMS Object Explorer contextual dialogs (right-click). Often the dialog will timeout and fail to render or multiple tries. Although we are able to disable object locking via the RedGate_SQLSourceControl_Engine_EngineOptions.xml file it would be much nicer to have control from the GUI. This could be in the form of a global on/off switch, or could even add functionality to blacklist certain servers. Alternatively, you could build in some kind of functionality to detect servers with high-latency and automatically turn off object locking.
