I know it's the exception. :)
One more point to make. It seems that, from a mostly layman's point
of view, that stirring a pool where an outside attacker knows nothing
or extremely little of the internal state isn't a bad thing to do.
I tend to run all my network interfaces with the "stir in the entropy,
but don't estimate how much was collected" mode.
I really think putting stronger language in the man page is the right
