Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  obscure adj. Used in an exaggeration of its normal meaning, to imply
     total incomprehensibility. "The reason for that last crash is obscure."
     "The `find(1)' command's syntax is obscure!" The phrase `moderately
     obscure' implies that something could be figured out but probably isn't
     worth the trouble. The construction `obscure in the extreme' is the
     preferred emphatic form.
