[Vtigercrm-developers] Removing modules that require ioncube?

We have a client who has asked us to migrate their system from vtiger 6 
to 7.

As part of this, they have a bunch of extension modules installed which 
require ioncube. For security reasons, we will not support any encrypted 
code on our development servers. Having copied across their system to 
start investigating, I am wanting to delete these custom modules but I 
can't use the vtlib $module->delete() call, even after manually setting 
the presence in vtiger_tab to 1 for one of these modules...

> phpwww remove.custom.modules.php 
(A script to delete loads of these modules)

> Processing CusomModuleName ... 

> Got module handle. Disable first ... Now deleting
         echo "Got module handle. Disable first ... ";
         $query = "UPDATE vtiger_tab SET presence = 1 WHERE name = ?";
         $adb->pquery($query, array($moduleName));
         echo "Now deleting" . PHP_EOL;

> Site error: the ionCube PHP Loader needs to be installed. This is a widely used PHP extension for running ionCube protected PHP code, website security and malware blocking.
> Please visit get-loader.ioncube.com for install assistance.

We do not and will not have programmes like ioncube running on our servers.

Can you suggest a way to safely remove/delete these modules?
