[messages] [Developers] How to inhibit observers as choice of sides?

How can the "observer" choice in the selection of sides be eliminated or
at least inhibited?

What I'm trying to accomplish is to have a hidden OOB that no one can
see until they choose a playing side; therefore, allowing observers to
see the pieces is undesirable.   My objective is to make a hidden OOB
that only becomes visible to the player(s) of that side.   All others,
including the observer would not see it.

I realize that the "observer" is used to create the scenario.vsav so
that the players will see the side selection choices.   

I'm hoping there is a trick, something like editing the module to then
remove the observer from the list menu.   When I need to edit the module
again, I'll add it back to the list.   Or if there is a "developer"
property that can be set that adds "developer" to the list of sides.
