Just want to note that this is wrong, and standalones do contain all unencrypted scripts as clear text. They also contain field contents, button names and custom properties (which all remain clear text even with a password).

This is of course because the engine actually reads the scripts every time you run one. Part of this is because you can set the script of an object within a standalone (tho for historical drm reasons you can't just set any script length, see the "scriptLimit" property).
