GB file xored with GB random file... trivially? It seems it's comparably trivial to guessing the right prime in case of passwordless encryptions.

XOR is pre-WW2 encryption
Honestly, it is great to try contributing to the open source movement, but this approach to securing data can be trivially broken.

There are many (gnupg, openssl, etc) implementations of data encryption that are much more secure and already free...

But why?
There are numerous encryption softwares available. What is the point of one that xors and hence when used with the username/password approach can be cracked by simple analysis of the crypted text?
