Here's the main problem I see with all of this.  No matter what you do to
try to protect your software, unless you've actually compiled it into
machine code, it has 1 major flaw for security...

Open your MetaCard/RunRev stack up in a text editor and you can then access
all of the scripts.

All 1 would have to do is run through all of the scripts until the
appropriate handler is found.  Figure it out from the script and away it is.
You have your code.  Or in some cases you can edit the script and resave it.
With the right editor you can do it.
