Thanks for weighing in Theodore, I think that matches what Colm's last suggestion was, and what I was personally OK with. To seed our SipHash function using GRND_NONBLOCK since it's likely that will be fine, and worst case we're just using it for some hash tables.

Then for our os.urandom binding, we should use getrandom() without GRND_NONBLOCK since we don't know why someone is calling os.urandom, but we know in practice people are using it for cryptographic keys and the like.
