this you could probably solve by undoing the patches that recently went
into Grok to avoid groking pyc files. You'd probably have to do this
yourself, though.

But this question you can only solve by adjusting your (and/or your
boss') attitude one way or other.

FWIW, just today I visited a customer who has a vertical application
which actually *is* technically protected from being run on a machine
where there is no license. It turned out that the customer, in this
case, is actually protected from using that particular program on his
computer, despite having a license, because the license verification
mechanism would not work quite right today.

I can only tell you what I'd say if this were my computer and my
program (license)...

Kind regards,
