Nope. Doesn't count, at least according to the definition on the quine page listed above:

I define a quine as a program which reproduces itself on an output device without inputting its source.

I think that most people who care about this would agree with the definition above. You could redefine "quine"; your task would then be to convice those who care that your definition is better. :-)

p.s. It doesn't have anything to do with obfuscation...
