Hi Belxjander,
Sorry for the slow reply.
I don't think that stacking multiple encryption algorithms offer enough advantage to justify the additional processing required to do so. It should be more time consuming to crack than using one encryption algorithm, but comes with additional overhead and complexity.
If you can afford the additional processing time needed for multiple encryption layers, then why not just use a larger key with one algorithm?

With regards to encryption, would "stacking" layers of known "decent" (functionally usable prior algorithms) be potentially flawed in the same way if care is taken for each step completed to avoid side-band channel attacks on the stack as a whole?
