How to obfuscate source code and ONLY the source code?

It seems that most obfuscators affect only the compiled assembly.  I am looking for something that will create an obfuscated copy of the source code (with some throttle ability as to how much obfuscation is applied).  I am in a Catch-22 with someone who has not upheld their end of an agreement (due to illness, not by intent).  That person needs a compilable copy of the source code on-hand in order to be eligible to receive imminent additional funding from a Fortune 500 company (at which point I finally get paid). My goal is to make it difficult to work with the source code unless I am involved.  All of this is out in the open between myself and the other person (nothing unethical).
