I'd have understood "tnx", never seens 10x b4 :-)
Your concerns are what licensing's for. ("No support on modified copies"
would be a good heading for a section addressing this issue).
With good enough release controls you can verify the code is unmodified
using md5 checksums or similar.
If a customer's good enough at Python to disassemble your .pyc files,
they will probably tell you they've modified your code when the support
queries come in :-)
