Oh, okay, my mind is set on remote attacks. In the scenario where the 
attacker has access to the hardware under attack, doing fake 
computations most resembling normal computations is definitely better 
then clock. In general, access to the hardware raises the bar for 
security very high. In such a scenario assembly language might be the 
best choice, or at least analysis of the binary code.
