However the concept seems familiar enough - unless I am missing something, a
PRNG (n for noise rather than number this time) in sync with a similar PRNG
at the recipient end is mixed with the plaintext signal to give a
cryptotext; the matching unit subtracts the same values from the received
signal to give the original plaintext.  If it were digital we would probably
xor it :)
