This argument would have stronger force if there were real code in
a real application, code that solved the overall problem -- code
that we could read and run. I don't know of any such code.

This seems to contradict an earlier comment made by someone else,
"So at the moment is a bit of a guess which entries are real and which
are obscured." <http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=10363#53>
I don't know who's right, nor do I understand what all the underlying
issues are. I expect most other app developers are in a similar boat.
It's not a good situation to be in.
