I'm going to reply to my own post here to post an updated version of the preceeding JAPH. It does the same thing, and still uses chomp as its engine, but now the actual script is shorter, more obfuscated, and pulls a couple of Perl tricks that the previous version didn't attempt.

Here's the updated version. Post a reply if you figure it out, or if you have comments that might nudge me along my quest for wisdom. ;)
