Tech - Useful Perl module

While looking for some updates, I found this tidbit:

use Acme::Bleach;
print "Hello world";

DESCRIPTION: The first time you run a program under use Acme::Bleach, the module removes all the unsightly printable characters from your source file. The code continues to work exactly as it did before, but now it looks like this:

use Acme::Bleach;

While I know this is tongue in cheek like most Acme modules, I can't help but wonder if this would be good for "this tape will self-descruct in ten seconds. Good luck, Mr. Phelps..." kinds of situations?
