Hi. I created the issue #27266 "Add block keyword-only optional parameter to os.urandom()" which is compromise between all proposed solutions and should fix *all* urandom issues ;-)

* os.urandom() remains secure by default, as asked by our security experts
* Python startup (hash secret) and "import random" don't block anymore
