The loader only can see the compiled scripts as ast nodes, even if the load some tools could dump the separated ast node to bytecode and de-compile it, think of one script is divided into thousands of pieces, it's not easy to assemble them again.

The final solution is to distribute the loader with encrypted scripts, only my own loader can run the encrypted scripts.
