For my current project, I have to take some measures to protect the lua
scripts against hacking. Rather than try to obfuscate the lua code
itself though, I was just going to pack a bundle of lua scripts and
other resources into encrypted and compressed archive files. I have a
runtime system that loads an archive file and mimics a file interface to
the contents. So lua requires no changes at all and just keeps opening
things from files, but the lua scripts are also protected from unwanted

And sure, a determined hacker could break the encryption but the system
seems reasonable for my needs.
