Not exactly. Passwords do not prohibit the use of a stack or a
standalone, they just disallow viewing the scripts. If you've built a
standalone, then there isn't much a user can inspect under the hood,
scripts or otherwise. If you distribute a password-protected stack, then
anything that doesn't require script access can be viewed or modified if
the user has a copy of the IDE. Basically, if it's a stack, everything
is open except the scripts. Standalones are more locked down and are
pretty much immutable and uninspectable.
If you want to prohibit use without authorization then you need to
implement a registration scheme of some type. There's one such system in
the Rev Store... ;)
