> Regardless of the behavior of os.urandom (and 'import random'), is it agreed that the current state of _PyRandom_Init is acceptable for 3.5.2?

I'll get back to you with a specific yes or no.  What I want is that it the behavior removed where "import random" can block unboundedly on Linux because it's waiting for the entropy pool to fill.  If the code behaves like that, then yes, but I'm not giving it my official blessing until I read it.
