Martin Panter (msg267511): "Maybe an alternative would be to add a special PYTHONHASHSEED=best-effort (or whatever) value that says if there is no entropy available, use a predictable hash seed. That would force whoever starts the Python process to be aware of the problem."

In my experience, it's better if users don't touch security :-) It's better if Python simply makes the best choices regarding to security.
