Dataloader unlocking records

Using the approval process one can lock a record from being edited. Can I use Dataloader to unlock a record and insert some data? I would then have the user complete some work, then submit the record for approval again to lock the record.

 

Is this possible?

I don't think so since there is no field to set that will lock/unlock your records. I don't know of a way to lock records via Apex either, but would like to if anybody knows.
