Obviously it's not too unreliable to be discovered (and mimicked by 
charlatans who use tricky instead) because it's been discovered. It is 
clearly still too unreliable to form the primary basis of military or 
industrial decisions, although it is reliable enough to have been a 
valuable ancillary input into intelligence work for decades in both the 
USA and the Soviet Union. Do some research.
