I don't know if you simply didn't post them, but if this function were commented (via some paragraph at the top, or between lines) and the comments were written to the audience, like you mentioned -- I would say it's just fine. Not very readable, but then again with the comments you might get an answer to the "why" (Or "why the hell??") question that pops up when looking at code like that.
