Call me an engineer, but I don't understand why anyone would dismiss security through obscurity just because it's theoretically useless. If you can reduce the lifetime expected value of successful attacks on your system, it should be considered a win regardless of how you do it. (Of course, relying solely on security through obscurity is a sure-fire way to greatly increase said EV.)
