Yes, but a shelved prop is more than just something that can 
have a quick fix attached to it.  Unless smething has changed 
recently, it's possible to totally rewrite a shelved prop, 
which means if you don't want to go to the trouble of fixing 
it you can simply re-use that half-prop-cost slot for a 
totally new prop.

It's more of a discount on your next purchase.
