*That* is why this two-envvar solution bothers me.

PYTHONHASHSEED has to be a string anyhow, so why not just get rid of
PYTHONHASHRANDOMIZATION?

Use PYTHONHASHSEED=random to use randomization.

Other values that cannot be turned into an integer will be (currently)
undefined.  (You may want to raise a fatal error, on the assumption
that errors should not pass silently.)

A missing PYTHONHASHSEED then has the pleasant interpretation of
defaulting to "0" for backwards compatibility.
