If a user has local copy of the data, he can freely modify the data and
you can't do anything about it; at worst they would just open the file
in a text editor and reproduce the changed made in the patch manually.
At most you could do some complex obfuscation scheme that will
self-checksum the source during build or something, but nothing you
could do is going to be incircemventable.
