Default Odexed ROM vs. Deodexed ROM

What is the difference between Odexed ROM and Deodexed ROM

I am having a bit of trouble getting my droid to behave and I am wondering if installing one of these clean ROM versions would help.

I'm not a dev so I don't know the inner workings, but basically an ODEX file is an optimized library file of some sort that's used with the APK (the program) files on the phone. I believe when they "de" ODEX a phone they are putting these files inside of the APK themselves so that they can be easily modified. Mainly this allows you to modify individual programs (in order to theme them for instance) since everything is packaged up inside of the APK file.

Other than the ability to make modifications to the APK, I don't think the de-odexing affects performance much. Also, someone please correct me if my description is off.
