> It's useful for the selftests, so I've kept PYTHONHASHSEED.

The reason to read PYTHONHASHSEED was so that multiple members of a
cluster could use the same hash.

It would have been nice to have fewer environment variables, but I'll
grant that it is hard to say "use something random that we have *not*
precomputed" without either a config file or a magic value for
PYTHONHASHSEED.
