If that were the case, then it would be the requirement for all desktop apps. Open source just makes it easier to grab the key; if you stick your keys in your Air or .NET app, they can still be grabbed. Basically, if you're doing a desktop app (of any kind) with OAuth, there is a risk that your consumer key will be misappropriated. The OAuth spec explicitly acknowledges this, stating that the consumer key/secret is cannot necessarily be trusted to securely identify the consumer. - Michael -- mouse, n: A device for pointing at the xterm in which you want to type.
