The biggest problem of one-time pads is their generation.
You need a properly whitened and reviewed hardware entropy 
source for that, which is a rare beast indeed (e.g.
many do not trust Intel's hardware RNG).

I would be very interested in hardware recommendations for
an affordable, high-quality hardware RNG (ideally something
like VIA Padlock RNG).
