You *can* of course password protect your stack, and on OS X you can put the
stack inside the StackRunner bundle. And of course you can change the name
of the StackRunner app and even modify its info.plist file on OS X to
customize it even more - the only thing you can't do is eliminate the "Get
Info" information since that's embedded in the resources of the executable.

Just my 2 cents,
