CodeShroud (?) from Gimpel Software (the Lint people) will do various semantics
preserving operations such as turning while() and for() loops into labelled
goto: structures in addition to the mangled names. I don't have their
material handy, so there may be many more nasties they've implemented.
I believe it is distributed in obfuscated form (physician, heal thyself) for
distribution on many target platforms - their Unix Lint is anyway.
