Ian: Use /dev/urandom
Bill: Use /dev/random

So I have a new basic theory about randomness: ask N crypto folks and get at least N+1 opinions.

I look forward to the day when the community can come to consensus.  Until then, OpenSSL will proceed as best as it can and get slammed for it at some point.
