assign this script to a hotkey, you can toggle xray on/off by just pressing the hotkey:

modelEditor -edit -xray (!`modelEditor -q -xray $currentPanel`) $currentPanel;

and inserting stuff on the shelf is not a version issue, its the same way to put stuff on shelf in all versions.

www.yousendit.com can host it for a while, just enough time to find a real server to host the file.

No, a video tutorial showing them how to put it on their shelf. Nothing big, but it took me less time to do that then to type it all out. I just include the .mel file.

Hey Mauricio, if you would still like that Xray package I made, contact me on AIM and I'll send it to you, as the hosting is still being weird and I don't feel like fixing it right now. This also goes for anyone else who would like to see how to put an Xray Toggle button on your shelf.
