It all depends on how "obfuscation" is defined.

For example, the code of FXSL is very readable (horizontal and
vertical indentation, meaningful names, extra bank space), however,
people who are not introduced to the ideas of functional programming
find any FXSL application "obfuscated"  :o)

In my practice, even giving the complete source code of a real world
(not too-small) application (in any language) will not help much. What
is much more valuable is the design document, which explains at a
higher level what the code is doing.

As the proverb goes, one cannot see the forest being too close to a tree.

The obfuscation could be lower than "military grade" but should be not easily be reversible.

I think an obfuscation method which is similarly used with Javascript and HTML sources.
