Don't ship the entire patch.
For example, suppose I'm selling a patch where the user can input single word 
"easing" styles like "ease-in-out", "rubber-band", "drunken-walk", etc., and 
it outputs lists of numbers that can be input into [vline~].  I'd do it this way:
[style-name(|[my-abstraction]|[ (|[vline~]
Which I can ship as
[netreceive]|[ (|[vline~]

I'm ignoring the interface for netsend/netreceive for the moment, but you 
get the idea.  The "business" logic stays on your machine, and remains a 
black box to your agent until you trust him/her.
