You can override that file without editing the installation, by copying that file to a ‘config’ folder in your user preferences (create it if it doesn’t exist), i.e. %HOME%\houdini17.5\config\on Windows or ~/houdini17.5/config/on Unix. Pretty much anything inside the installation’s “houdini” folder you can override for yourself by putting in your preferences.

Hope that helps!
