[messages] [Module Design] Code enabled VASSAL modules?

Is there any feature in VASSAL that can allow game companies to protect
their copyrights?

I'm thinking something along the lines of a "code enabled" game module
where a user would need to contact the copyright holder (i.e., typically
a game company) to receive a code that enables the module for use?  The
code would, of course, need to be personalized to the user somehow,
perhaps by hashing with his computer's MAC address.

If something like this existed, it would allow companies to control
distribution (and charge if they saw fit) which ultimately could lessen
anxiety about having their games developed in electronic form on VASSAL.
