That reminds me of the old analog voice-encryption hack of modulating the
signal using another audio signal, usually derived from a radio station. At
the far end, all they have to do is have a schedule of what radio station
(which could even be world-wide shortwave) when. The agreed radio stations
act as that same infinitely-long one-time pad, but, obviously this scheme is
pretty insecure. I like the elegance, though.
