it ~may~ be effective against password recovery in some forms of crypto: 
an attacker (torturer) would know when the password is revealed because a 
valid message is produced.

a courier with a photographic memory could give up countless "secrets", 
and none of them the ~right~ one. really, if you beat the crap out of 
someone long enough and hard enough, they'll admit to being osama bin 

off the top of my head, outguess <> is the closest 
thing to a real crypto app with a decent "plausible deniability" feature.
