Interesting read, thanks for posting!

Question for the security programmer folks: Are there code obfuscation
techniques, for Python or other languages, that actually work against such
a determined attacker, or is this DropBox client pretty close to "state of
the art?"

You can't really just say "don't use Python," because C et al. can be
decompiled, too.
