I'd like to make a tool or tool category visible only to certain users on a
Galaxy installation. I've trawled the Galaxy Wiki/Searches a fair bit for
this but didn't see it, hope it's not obvious.

Context is: a Galaxy Cloudman installation running on AWS, with a category
of extra custom tools added to the standard menu. One of them is the latest
"development" version of a tool which should ideally be only visible and
runnable for the developer.

I've got a temporary solution where the development version checks the
Galaxy login id, eg. f...@someplace.com and exits with an error if fred is
not one of the privileged id's. I'm trusting that the standard security in
Galaxy will be enough to prevent any determined workaround to make it run
(and indeed view the code).

However it would be better if non-privilged users couldn't even see the
tool. Any way to do that ?
