It's useful for the selftests, so I've kept PYTHONHASHSEED.  However,
I've removed it from the man page; the only other place it's mentioned
(in Doc/using/cmdline.rst) I now explicitly say that it exists just to
serve the interpreter's own selftests.

Am attaching a revised patch, which has the above change, plus some
tweaks to Lib/test/test_hash.py (adds test coverage for the datetime
hash randomization):
  optin-hash-randomization-for-3.1-dmalcolm-2012-01-30-001.patch

Has anyone had a chance to try this patch on Windows?  Martin?  I'm
hoping that it doesn't impose a startup cost in the default
no-randomization cost, and that any startup cost in the -R case is
acceptable.
