> (or is /dev/urandom still available in a chroot?)

Last time that I played with chroot, I "binded" /dev and /proc. Many
programs rely on specific devices like /dev/null.

Python should not refuse to start if /dev/urandom (or CryptoGen) is
missing or cannot be used, but should use a weak fallback.
