I had a short chat with Guido yesterday. I'll try to sum up the conversation. Guido, please correct me if I got something wrong or missed a point.

Guido wants the fix as simple and less intrusive as possible as he wants to provide/apply a patch for Python 2.4 to 3.3. This means any new stuff is off the table unless it's really, really necessary. Say goodbye to my experimental MurmurHash3 patch.

We haven't agreed whether the randomization should be enabled by default or disabled by default. IMHO it should be disabled for all releases except for the upcoming 3.3 release. The env var PYTHONRANDOMHASH=1 would enable the randomization. It's simple to set the env var in e.g. Apache for mod_python and mod_wsgi.
