But using 'perl2exe' isn't so much a lock on a door. It's
like scribbling 'this door is locked' on the door. And it
gives people a false sense of security. Which is worse than
having no security at all.

It's like scribbling 'this door is locked' on the door.
There's a door here with a sign that says "Opening this door will set off the fire alarm". There is no alarm, but since they put that sign on the door has not been opened by anyone, while before it was used as a normal exit all the time.
If the imaginary lock looks real enough, most people won't even bother.
No one has opened the door because of the risk of embarrassment or disciplinary action. There is no such risk associated with poking around inside a long string of ones and zeroes with a file browser or debugger in the privacy of one's basement.
Update: please do me a favor and if you choose to -- this node, tell me why. I'm perplexed at all the downvotes. Is the statement I made above incorrect, offensive, off-topic or impolite in any way?
