I'm back with a generic question I think I may have asked before:  How 
to reversibly "disable" (make non-evaluatable) and re-enable (make 
evaluatable) all the Input cells in a group of cells, preferably in a 
"one-click" fashion, without messing up all the Text and Subsection 
cells in the same group?

Consider for example a long notebook with sections, e.g.

    Section 1

    Section 2

    Section 3

    Section 4

where each section is a group that contains subsections, subsubsections, 
text, input cells, maybe some old output cells.  At different times I 
want to disable certain sections and evaluate just sections 1,2,4, or 
1,3,4, or maybe just 1,4, using either "ctrl-A Enter" to evaluate all 
the desired (enabled) sections or "Shift-Enter" to step down through all 
the enabled cells one by one, skipping the disabled sections.

How to enable or disable all the input cells in one section, reversibly, 
with one action?

(A palette button, maybe?  Any expert want to cook one up?)
