in thread Perl 6 ... dead?

I didn't suggest that the key be hidden inside the VM. I suggested that it be entered by the users, every time the encrypted program was run; hence the "it would be a huge pain in the ass to users" part. :)

    Well, that would be trivial to "break" from the onset, since the algorithm is known and the key is also known.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      Right, it would have the same vulnerabilities that "Enter Serial Number to Install" software does now.
