the right-click menu can be changed, but this would apply to *all*
abstractions, not just specific ones (e.g. see the iemguts'
[propertybang] object, which changes the effect of the "Properties" item
in the menu, and requires some extra code to hide this for canvases that
don't have a a [propertybang] object).

but if you just want to prevent users from opening up objects in your
publicly facing installation, i'd do:
- make all public objects GOP (even if they are not effectively showing
anything, this will prevent the abstraction from being opened by "just
- use the kiosk-plugin to disable the right-click menu completely
(HidePopup True), so the abstractions cannot be opened via the
context-menu either.
