If it ends up on a user's machine, they can get at it. The best, if you
really think it's that much worth hiding, that you can hope for is to
obfuscate it. But that doesn't really help you much 'cause anybody who
really thinks your stuff is worth stealing is going to be able to
deobfuscate it anyway.

I don't like deliberate obfuscation myself. However, if you're still
sure you want to do it, then you could do a lot worse than Dean Edward's
