[New-bugs-announce] [issue12049] expose RAND_bytes() function of OpenSSL

New submission from STINNER Victor <victor.stinner at haypocalc.com>:

The _ssl module has RAND_add() RAND_status() and RAND_egd() functions, but not RAND_bytes(). I would be nice to be able to generate random bytes using RAND_bytes().

And maybe also RAND_pseudo_bytes()?

I will work on a patch, it's just a reminder.
