Well... since the method name belongs to the LWP package I can't very well go changing that unless I perform the same steps on LWP as well. Anyhow, the patch as written renames pad and stash accesses. It does introduce bugs where otherwise correct accesses to %ENV would now fail. If the obfuscator were actually correct it'd need to have special cases to avoid changing things that shouldn't be. I figure that's best implemented by adding support for a list of expressions that may not be altered. Anyhow, since I don't need an obfuscation filter I'm not going to alter B::Obfuscate to add that support. Changing string constants is somewhat problematic but not irresolvable given the framework provided by B::Deparse.

I'll leave it to someone else to extend the new module.

    In that particular line, method name shouldn't be obfuscated of course. It was meant that your patch doesn't even try to obfuscate method names.
