I think either solution would work for us;

A) Ability to lock publication either of the entire /ooo-site or at
the level of a specific subdir.   But I suppose from perspective of
Infra, everything is a subdir.

B) Ability in CMS for user to check off which files are actually
published, e.g., which subset.  If it can default to select the files
that were modified in the current session, that is even better.
