I'm curious, when you say you won't make it open-source, which method of
deployment & distribution you guys are picking up? Asking as your choices
in this regard are very limited in python land. If you decided to use
any of the existing freezers {bbFreeze, py2exe, pyInstaller, cx_Freeze,
py2app} your code would be very easy to unpack. The only choice I know that
could bring you enough "protection" are either nuitka(mature enough) or
beeware(not ready to use on production).

Also, there is pyqtdeploy although I don't know which packing method uses
behind the curtains... so not sure how easy would be to break/unpack.
