Now all Alice and Bob need is a shared strong 256-bit key obtained by
rolling 16-sided dice, and a shared high quality deterministic random
number generator.  They will avoid reusing any masking bits by always
starting from the last point plus the most recent "bytes processed"
output value.

They'd have to be *insaaaaane* to use that!

P.S. Psst.  Can you point me to the high quality deterministic random
number generator?
