I believe RunRev engineers are exploring options for that, but really
the issue affects all applications at some level or another:
Those with the skills and interest to use low-level debugging tools can
apply them to using disassemblers on core dumps to learn the algorithms
of any process.
True, LiveCode is more easily readable, but given the sorts of things
it's used for it's also less interesting.
The rule of protecting media also applies to algorithms: the only sure
way to protect them is to never distribute them.
