Hi,

the reason to encode a Mathematica package *is*
to hide the implementation !
It is done, if the author of the code don't like
to show you how clever he is. Many programmer don't
like to give the source code away. Encoding is the
only possibility to hide the source for the case of
a Mathematica package...

DumpSave offers another possibility, which produces a binary 
distribution medium for package developers.
