Re: removing authorization key, putting it back later

For one thing, it's not a problem. It's by design. For a second thing,
if you're going to be using it, you'd darned well better read up on it.
Third, whether you or anyone else thinks it's stupid is irrelevant, this
is the way it is. Ranting and stamping your foot isn't going to change
it. Your software would be more expensive if there were no
copy-protection scheme associated with it. Now I'll leave you to hold
your breath until your face turns blue.
