[Product-Developers] Hiding Add-ons from Site Setup

Hi there,

I'd like to know if there is any product that can help me to hide an 
Add-on from the list of available Add-ons in "Site setup". Let me 
explain why.

I am in the situation of hosting multiple customers Plone sites running 
on the same Zope instance, each site is using a different Data.fs, and I 
have made a few packages for each customer customization, something like 
"Customer A Theme", Customer B Theme". Now, because they are on the same 
Zope instance, Customer A can see in its site Add-ons list that 
"Customer B Theme" is also available, which is what I'm trying to avoid.

Hiding products from the Add-ons list would be also useful in some other 
cases, for example a more skilled customer can have PloneFormGen 
installed, while regular customers don't.

I don't know if such a product exist and I'm willing to make one, if 
some of you can point me to the right direction.

Thank you,
  Danilo Dellaquila
