It was also (fairly) seriously discusses or at least used as an excuse before the Winter War in 1939.
Not by military planners.
after that it reverted back to Britain and France at least for the duration of the Winter War and its immediate aftermath.
The period was short and there was an obvious problem with deployment of considerable allied contingents in Finland and their Navies could not enter the Baltic Sea, of course. Therefore as far as war against the Allies was concerned the Finnish Theater was of little importance. It looks that allied incursions in Caucasus and Black Sea were considered more likely. Again the discussion start with the words "Before Winter War". In any case it is hardly really important for this topic.
