This should be fairly easy: If you're one of the very privileged few who'll ever see this cave feature, then no boastful talk in there please! (5,4)

Correct!  Load of bull (or bulls**t even).  You wouldn't want (a) bull in a china shop would you?

A clue perhaps?  If it's an anagram of 'graph software' (6,2,5) it's got me beat!
