Sure, it wouldn't be difficult at all. First I want to put it into
the FreeBSD ports collection, but I have some Linux changes to merge,
and the person who submit them completely reindented everything, so
I'm summoning up courage to fix things up. Also, the NetBSD hooks are
a little primitive:
#define srandomdev() srand ((unsigned) time (NULL))
I'll take a look at that, too, when I have time.
