I decided to cheat, here is my solution:
bschroed@oerfi:~/svn/projekte/tumblezip$ ./tumblezip.rb tumblezip.rb >tumblezip.tumbled.rbbschroed@oerfi:~/svn/projekte/tumblezip$ cat tumblezip.tumbled.rbrequire "zlib"puts Zlib::Inflate.inflate(DATA.read)__END__xSV/-.O/*M*J-,,JUP¡±LR*(-)VP      +4u¡¤@@U,KI,I.!zE(c))0J(r)~.J:FT1}/bschroed@oerfi:~/svn/projekte/tumblezip$ ruby tumblezip.tumbled.rb#!/usr/bin/ruby
require 'zlib'
puts %(require "zlib"),     %(puts Zlib::Inflate.inflate(DATA.read)),     "__END__",     Zlib::Deflate.deflate(ARGF.read)
It definitely fails on human readability, though compression and dryis quite good ;-)
cheers,
Brian
