My final thoughts on this entire topic is this:

The suggestions made here, and in the other thread, are pointless api 
breaking changes that do no effect the stated target audience (people 
who actually need secure random numbers but are not getting them 
correctly - they will still find a way to do it wrong, changing the api 
wont fix that).  The net effect is a longer support burden on 2.x - this 
proposes another porting headache for NO reason.
