encrypting script-only stacks

Sure, and with the extra benefit that you wouldn't have to expose your 
code to end-users.

That is, unless there's a way to include SoS in a standalone that 
includes encryption, such as an automated method in the Standalone Builder.

I couldn't find one, but it seems like such a pervasive issue for the 
class of devs most likely to use SoS (pros dependent on VCS) that I'm 
hoping I just missed something.
