Will you attempt to model human shuffling too and see how it affects
analysis? Is there maybe any existing work on that too reuse? I'd like to
know what the minimum requirement would be for a human to achieve a secure
shuffle for these ciphers (in case any of these ciphers would actually be
secure enough given a proper shuffle).
