Allow setting the watchlist table to read-only on a per-wiki basis
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Problem
The watchlist tables need to receive a wl_id column. During that time, no changes should be made to the database. To keep that time small, we only want to have those tables in read-only state, where the wl_id column is actually added.

Task
Allow setting the watchlist tables to read-only on a per-wiki basis.

Looks like we are not going to do this, as it will not be needed as wl_id should be added during the current data centre switch.

I still think it would be nice to have that feature there if needed

Hmm, okay, I will reopen.
The patches already exist after all and just need review.

@Legoktm any chance you can take another look at this? :)
