HxD: switch between read-only and read-write modes

I really like HxD, but I found that I cannot switch between read-only mode and read-write mode after I open a file (or there's a way to do it?)

I'd like to request a feature that allows user to switch from read-only to read-write without re-opening the file, maybe by double-clicking on "Readonly" label on status bar.

I also think that adding 2 menu items in explorer's context-menu is too much... ideally I would just add 'Open with HxD" and start in read-only mode, if user needs to modify the file, he can always switch to read-write mode.
