LOL! Wow, I didn't know the folks from were so well informed on crypto and programming. :-)

Point well taken. I do work with crypto, cryptosystems, and the implementation/use thereof on a daily basis, both as part of my work and as something I enjoy in my spare time. I've read the books, attended the seminars, etc. My purpose was two-fold:
  1. To get some general feedback on whether or not this may be a useful concept. Casual early analysis looks good, but I wanted more opinions than my own.
  2. To get some ideas for a faster/better/more efficient way of coding the encryption.
That's actually why I hesitated to post anything. I don't want anyone to get the idea that I'm proffering this as some super, extra-sneaky, brilliantly conceived, extraordinarly complex crypto idea that only I was capable of coming up with. Far, far from it. We've all seen our fair share of those sorts of posts, mostly from people who don't know good cryptography from a horse poopoo and anchovy pizza. I honestly intended for this to be a question, rather than a solution.
