A little Levure-oriented question

AFA the password protection goes, the traditional stack is only required
when you _distribute_ the app.  You do not need to store it that way.  When
you build a Levure app, it automatically creates a binary stack, installs
the code, and password protects it.  You get the best of both worlds:  On
your system and in your VCS you have the script as straight text, and when
you distribute it, you get encrypted.
You are absolutely correct that scripts that never change don't benefit
from version control (and really, for short scripts, the value of version
control is also limited).  In this case, the reason why I like to have this
code stored in SOS's is because if I ever accidentally change one of these
scripts, my git tool will flag it as a change that has to be committed.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
