Thanks.  I'm attaching new patches:

I incorporated the feedback from Gregory P Smith's review.

I haven't changed the way the command-line options or env variables
work, though.

Changes relative to *-2012-02-11-001.patch:
  * added versionadded 2.6.8 and 3.1.5 to hash_randomization/-R within
Docs/library/sys.rst and Docs/using/cmdline.rst (these will need
changing to "2.7.3" and "3.2.3" in the forward ports to the 2.7 and 3.2
  * fixed line wrapping within the --help text in Modules/main.c
  * reverted text of urandom__doc__
  * added comments about the specialcasing of length 0:
      We make the hash of the empty string be 0, rather than using
      (prefix ^ suffix), since this slightly obfuscates the hash secret
    (see discussion in

I didn't change the range of values for PYTHONHASHSEED on 64-bit
