: ??? Wouldn't this be _substantially_ worse than psuedo-random data?  If
: all of this stuff really works, then you should be able to model _exactly_
: how each bit on the disk was impacted.  Even if you don't know the
: sequence, you could probably derive the character runs, at which point you
: could automagically factor their impact out.

	What I am trying to capture is the following idea: it is better
to add a known signal that is difficult to remove than to add a random
or constant signal that can effectively be filtered out.
