How to block New Folder creation in SharePoint 2007

Hi
I have a business requirement to enforce the document management structure on my SharePoint 2007 farm. The request is to block the ability of all users to create new folders (besides those already present in the doc library). This way the structure is set in stone and no one can break it.
I know we can easily remove the new folder command from the menu but that does not block users from creating a a new folder from mapped drive or using explorer view or using Save As option from within the office application.
I have seen some posts but none has got a solution that seems easy to implement.

I had to get a developer to do this for me. It was not posible through normal or advanced admin tools.
