For a trivial approach, rubyscript2exe might give some protection
provided you don't make shrinkwrapped software. If $2500 (which I
presume to be half a senior developer's monthly pay) for a site licence
is too expensive, I don't expect there to be too much valuable IP and
R&D investment to protect. (No offense meant.)
