Re: VMs: glossolalia?

 nonsense (semantically completely empty), there will 
 still be order compared to the output of a random 
 number generator.  Glossalalia is probably the closest

 the correct basis for comparison. >>

Please indulge my VMs newbie ignorance, but I'd like to ask an obvious and 
possibly trite (I hope not foolish) question. 
Has anyone attempted to quantify the VMs's degree of randomness by comparing 
it to similarly scaled products of random number generators (perhaps even 
generators tweaked to run VMs type characters)? This comparison might yield a 
signature of some type; perhaps one consistent (or otherwise) with the use of 
Cardan grilles.
