Dumb question time: Do we want to introduce a dependency on /dev/random?
Looks like most people have it now.
Go for it. It's 2012, and enough other things need a random number supply for
crypto that you can probably safely consider a system that still doesn't have
/dev/random as being somewhere between archaic and downright crippled.
What still doesn't have /dev/random, and what does software do to compensate?
I'm only mentioning this because we got recent bug reports about
things not working right because of a buggy snprintf() on an ancient
HPUX box. Does the ancient HPUX box in question have /dev/random? Good
