I am opening the ZODB in read-only, using the appropriate parameter in

I think of it as a break-in in the ZMI.
i want to minimize interference with the database.
I use a MySQL database for storing some info.
Also, since this will be a commercial product, keeping most of the
code in compiled python scripts is meaningful.
As Jens already explained, .pyc's and pyo's can be decompiled in a
matter of minutes, so you're getting nothing for this worry other than
finding debugging a pain ;-)
Yes, i fully understand the disadvantages, but i have dealt with the
debugging with some custom exception handling/tracing. And, believe me,
