we haven't been able to come to a conclusion with regard to the GUI
yet, but that shouldn't keep you from starting to work on layer
locking. It probably makes sense to start implementing this from the
bottom up. Whether you then add a GUI for it into the layer row or
somewhere above the layer list, doesn't really matter much. It will be
easy to change later if there's a need to do that.

So, to get you started, why not add locked flags to the GimpLayer
object and make sure that they are correctly respected by the rest of
GIMP? You will probably also want to add a PDB interface to the new
layer properties. Please ask whenever you need help. It is a lot
easier to ask a few questions than to poke around in the source code
for hours.
