Are you also assuming those customers have no-one they can talk with who
knows programming?

Pyarmor is not going to stop them redistributing anything. If they're
motivated to redistribute the code, this won't stop them. If they're
motivated to examine what the code does, this will increase the effort
but not stop them.

At best, it will annoy customers who want to get someone's help in
debugging the product. That sounds like an anti-feature.
