No.  You could add this to the program, I guess, but it complicates 
things and is partially beyond the scope of the program's intent.

If a module is installed on a system, it's locked status shouldn't matter.  
If it's installed, it should work.  (This, of course,  is not the case on 
crosswire.org where we have lots of locked modules that pretend to be 
installed but are not really.)

The self-generating interface page that you get when you run the script 
with no arguments was never intended as the normal way to interface it.  
It's quite an inefficient way of doing things and was only done because of 
people's requests for such a feature.  Language info might be a nice 
addition though, if someone feels like throwing that into diatheke.
