rndseed for pxeboot_ia32.bin?

Now that the random-number/entropy system permits retrieving/storing the
entropy-file from NFS for diskless systems, shouldn't it also be possible
to get 'pxeboot_ia32.bin' to initialize kernel entropy the same way "/boot"
can when loading from disk?

My rolling update build of -current indicates that 'pxeboot' was last
modified around the 9.99.48 era and displays an error message and help
menu if the chosen "menu=" item includes the "rndseed <foo>" command.
