> Python hash randomization only happens once.  So it's not a matter of how early we try the attack, it's a matter of how early we seed Python hash randomization.

Sorry Larry, I was insufficiently clear (relying on context from earlier). I totally agree that Python startup should not block. I'm saying that having getrandom() called in "blocking mode" for os.urandom, random.SystemRandom, and secrets is not a DoS vector.
