not quite correct.  incapable pilots would shift into D or R without
ascertaining proper idle or by pure accident and then floor the Go pedal
instead of the Stop pedal.  The lockout mod prevents it by forcing the 
(incompetent) pilot to, gee, put their foot on the brake while shifting out
of P or N.
