Hi John,
It has always been bypassed. The last thing anyone wants to do is to spend
time busting encryption when other methods can make the job easier.
Bletchley called it "cribs"... :-). Traffic analysis was always more
important and much was gained from geographical positioning and regular
reporting by such organisations as German weather forecasting stations. The
encoders were creatures of habit, after all. We call it metadata
nowadays... :-).
P.S. Hope you and your missusses exhibition went well... :-).

Adi Shamir at RSA Conference:

Fully secure systems don't exist now and won't exist in the future.

Cryptography won't be broken, it will be bypassed.

Futility of trying to eliminate every single vulnerability in a given piece
of software.
