Yes, I saw them. I was referring to something outside his actual
arguments, ahem :-).

Oh, I don't think there's any accusation going on here. We're
disagreeing about what is "obfuscation". Since obfuscation is about
what is clear to a human, the answer will depend partly on which human
is considering the question. Another way of saying it is that it's a
matter of taste.

The question of whether integer space is big enough is also, in a
sense, a matter of taste, at least until many years from now.
