[Sidefx-houdini-list] shelves - prevent writing into custom version

Here's one for ya ...

Let's say I've created a custom shelf set to be used throughout a studio.
The file is located in a specific location on the network.

During a Houdini session, an artist adds this custom shelf set & they add a
new shelf to this shelf set. They save the shelf to their home Houdini
directory. Unfortunately, this process has added a memberToolshelf entry to
the custom shelf - polluting the file.

Aside from making the custom shelf file read-only, are there any other
tools/commands to prevent writing to the custom shelf? Is there a way to
hide the 'New Shelf' choice in the menu?
