[Sidefx-houdini-list] pre/post cmd for op creation

Yep, you can use a Creation Script. They're not used so much anymore 
because the Presets->Make Permanent Defaults does a lot of what people 
used to use it for.

Basically, you have a script in a specific place in your HOUDINI_PATH 
(something like $HOME/houdini8.0/script/sop/) named the same as your 
operator (xform.cmd) and whatever is in it will run after you add the 
new operator, each time.

I may have the paths wrong above, check in $HFS/houdini/scripts for 
examples. Bones use these a lot I believe
