Yes, OAuth is really that easy ;-)

If they aren't readable in your PHP code, then you can't use them, and
that wouldn't be very useful, would it?

Just don't give the keys to your users, and you'll be fine. When you
release the script to other websites you may want to consider using
other keys, but I don't think that that applies to you.
