[Python-Dev] BDFL ruling request: should we block forever waiting for high-quality random bits?

To expand on my idea of printing a warning, in 3.6 we could add a new
Warning exception for this purpose, so you'd have command-line control over
the behavior of os.urandom() by specifying -WXXX on your Python command
line. For 3.5.2 that's too fancy though -- we can't add a new exception.
