script type
This allows "toggling" of more complex operations, like switching off "diffthis".  It also reduces the number of key mappings used overall by placing the operations under a key activated command window menu, i.e. if the key map is <leader>o  and <leader> is ",":
displays an option list in the command window:
     wrap, Wrapscan, list, binary, modifiable, diff, virtualedit, uhex
so the full command
toggles "diff" mode on/off for a window (including foldcolumn=0)
toggles "modifiable" and "readonly" together.

You should edit the script to add what want.  E.g.  add your item to the menu call string:

    let l:char = s:Char_menu( "{w}rap, {W}rapscan, {l}ist, {b}inary, {m}odifiable, {d}iff, {v}irtualedit, uhe{x}" )

where {text} is in a different color, then add an elseif clause:

    elseif l:char ==# 'm'
        if &modifiable && !&readonly
            set nomodifiable
            set readonly
            set modifiable
            set noreadonly
        set readonly?
        set modifiable?
install details
Put it in the plugin directory.  Change the <leader>o  key map as desired.
