what does the new light table lock option do?

For the life of me, I can't figure out what the new lock option in the light table does, other than turn the box red. I would assume that it should prevent me from changing something, but I don't see any change in behavior.

The lock option is there for more advanced culling.
Here's a use case: let's say you have a set of 30 images and would like to make a top-5 pick. So you select the first 5 images and open the Light table. If there's no winner in those 5 then click the -> button to open the next 5 images. Now you find a keeper. Lock that box. Again, click the next button. Now only the unlocked boxes populate with new images. The locked box keeps showing the keeper. Repeat this until you have your 5 keepers.
