What you guys are describing Bernie Hutchins did 15 years ago. I will have to dig out the exact Electronotes, but he had "Voltage Controlled Probability" for the output that would go from accurate to white noise and all points in between.

I've always wondered about how to get true randomness out of a wholly digital
machine based on 1's and 0's. Is it really possible or will a pattern
Back in the days of the Apple II, I would look thru a rom and xor it with
other data like the game port and cassette input.
The idea I've settled on now is to take an analog noise source and feed it to
"Always put outputs to inputs and inputs to outputs. Putting outputs to
outputs and inputs to inputs just won't get you anywhere you want to go."
