Pretty much any source code encoding scheme can be defeated, given
enough work. The point is in making sure that it is too much work to do
Though I wonder what the point is - it's not likely to be all that hard
to run the code on another system. The main point seems to be to prevent
administrators from making local changes, and I must admit to not seeing
a problem with people who have bought the software doing that.
