comment How would one crack a weak but unknown encryption protocol?
Not an unreasonable position, if you are proficient enough to combine the algorithms safely without introducing new vulnerabilities. Another choice, if you are proficient enough, is to make a trivial modification to a well known algorithm and keep the modification secret. However, in the real world, you are almost 100% guaranteed to make things worse by adding something to it - cryptography is hard, even though it might at times seem like it isn't.
