View webpart properties without checking out the template

When using versioning and checkout/checkin for templates I have to checkout a template not only yo modify webparts on the template but also to view the properties of a webpart.
I often need to just view the properties of webparts and this is not possible if another developer has the template checkedout.

I'd like to be able to open the properties window of a webpart in read-only mode when the template is not checkedout by me.

    Should also note that undoing a checkout just to be able to view settings can cause loss of changes made by user holding the checkout. This really should be fixed. Checkout should only restrict editing, not viewing
