We could just scramble the original string as swaps are made, however, we want to retain both the original and the scrambled version.

 Cost Based Query Scrambling for Initial Delays   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Scrambling modifies query execution plans on-the-fly when delays are encountered during runtime.
In its original formulation, scrambling was based on simple heuristics, which although providing good performance in many cases, were also shown to be susceptible to problems resulting from bad scrambling decisions.
The results show that cost-based scrambling can effectively hide initial delays, but that in the absence of good predictions of expected delay durations, there are fundamental tradeoffs between risk aversion and effectiveness.
