Well, you could be right in your disbelief, maybe I am overstating the
effect of "distributing as ACCDE". By that all I know is that we take the
ACCDB and swap the last letter of the extension. Access treats the file as
an ACCDE and will not let the users near the code. We do not do anything in
particular to compile (and I wouldn't know how to uncompile) the tool
beyond what Debug | Compile does in the VBA IDE..
