Feature request #15652
Add option for OGR data sources to be opened in read only mode

Apparently some data formats (e.g. geopackage) load with better performance if they are opened in "read only" mode - esp. when loaded from a network share.
The add vector layer dialogue should therefore offer a "read only" flag for opening of vector formats that don't need to be edited.
