Can someone develop an app to "improve" the security password options?

I would love to see RIM update, or perhaps a third party vendor "improve" the security options available on our BB's. Here is what I would like to see:


The ability to enable password protection, with a timeout of "never" (currently 1 hour is the max), but allow "lock handheld upon holstering".


Here is my reasoning: Around the house, when my BB isn't in my hand, I leave it unholstered laying on a table, counter or in a charger base. I am not concerned about security in my home. If I "lose" it, I am not worried. When I leave the house, I holster it. This is when I want it password protected. If I lose it then, I would be in a world of hurt.


Can you help me, and others I am sure, RIM? Software developers?


Thanks for reading this and for your consideration!
