Lack of good randomness does not quite equal insecure install.  Warn
about it, sure, but I think *requiring* randomness is a bad idea.  For
example, I've been working with recent NetBSD at work, for something
for which the presence or absence of good random-seed data makes
absolutely no difference to security.
