Windows Mobile: How to Disable Touch Input in WP

Sometimes you might want to 'lock' the screen, better say: disable touch input. For example, if you put the device in a pocket, to avoid accidentally tapped screen elements.

It took me a long time and deep searches and trials to find out, how that could be done. Beside there is a API function called DisableTouch, you need to reboot to re-enable touch screen input. The corresponding APIEnableTouch() needs a function pointer as callback for touch input processing. How could you provide some?
