Can I prevent changing the fields directly in book list?

I'm in the habit of sharing Calibre book libraries with a number of people (family, friends), and I find it scary that its so easy to change ANY book field in the list just by lingering with the mouse on it, even the book title or author...

I didn't find any way to prevent this behavior from the settings, and if the option doesn't exist I would really like KG to add it in a future version - even if activated, nothing would prevent changing metadata from the MD pane, and it would make the app MUCH safer with reader-only non-geek public.

And while I'm on my X-mas wish-list, I'd also like more options in creating and formatting a book catalog (like taking a selection) - that would be awesome.

Anyway, thanks for the great job KG, I personally really like the s/w and use it a lot.
