But that said, I wonder if having something may be useful legally for some

If someone just went and did "select * from pg_proc" they could claim they
weren't violating their EULA or any protection you had put in place. If they
went through the trouble having to de-obfuscate it then you would have a
strong DMCA claim in the US.

But Jonah's entirely right that there's no way to make it technically
impossible to de-obfuscate. All you can do is make any casual observer pause
and decide to break your license agreement. 

If you don't believe him, just as the DVDCCA...
