Yes, if you create a LicensingOptions file (something like that, check
$HFS/houdini for the real name) in the $HOME of a user, when that exists
and is set to LocalLicensing (see contents of same file in $HFS/houdini) it
will be Apprentice.

Then have a command that either creates that or renames it. When you rename
to something else (i.e. .bak) then it will revert to Commercial.
