Bug Description

Current situation:
When the passcode is on/set, I shouldn't be able to reply to my text messages as my phone is considered lock.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Text message received
2. Messaging menu via indicators
3. Tap to expand a missed message
4. Text box appeared, start typing message
5. Send

Desired solution:
when the passcode is on/set, the user should only be able to view the missed messages. Tapping on a message should take me to the passcode screen and after keying the PIN, it should take the user directly to the messaging thread in the messaging app.

I don't think the messaging menu is the right place to solve this. Unity knows whether the screen is locked and can disallow access to the indicators in this case.

Or do we want access to some indicators but not others?

actually this feels like its really the responsibility of the greeter. as well, we need to have the greeter split from the unity8 process before we turn on true locking (required pin entry) so as to avoid making anyone feeling secure before its really there.
