OpenBSD already provides high quality pseudorandom numbers from arc4random(). I don't think this would make us "early adopters" since it has been around for some time on this platform.

It's also worth mentioning that getentropy() is not recommended in use for normal code as per stated in the man page. arc4random() is recommended, but there may be a reason the first poster has recommended getentropy()
