Bruce Schneier's algorithm

I am looking for further information about # Bruce Schneier's algorithm (described in his book Applied Cryptography by Bruce Schneier).
I only know it´s a 7 pass algorithm which includes 5 pseudorandom passes.
The commercial prodcut Acronis Driver Cleanser uses # Bruce Schneier's algorithm.
I think the method is more secure than DOD 7 pass, because as I remember Peter Gutmann claims that for modern hard drives pseudorandom passes are better than static passes.
Darik, have you thought about adding additional wiping methods for example # Bruce Schneier's algorithm?
Or do you think it´s not necessary?
Thanks

I will add this method to the DBAN enhancement wishlist.
