Provide option to disable the Program Verifier

Provide some option to completely disable the Program Verifier.

The verification is not a background task like a search, it is uninterruptable and often takes a very long time, during which nothing else can be done. The verification cannot be cancelled (though there exists a cancel button, it does not work).

I tried unbinding the ctrl-shift-v key binding, but it seems to be hard-coded into the LPEX editor (it is listed as ctrl-shift-v in the Source menu regardless of key bindings).

Use Case:

Try to compile a member using ctrl-shift-c, but press the ctrl-shift-v by mistake (they are right next to each other). Now wait 10 minutes for the verification to grind to a halt so you can compile.

    This RFE has been re-evaluated. Due to the relatively low number of votes, this RFE is now being declined.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
