Now that the default PRNG of the 'random' package is automatically reseeded at fork, wouldn't it make sense to reseed the OpenSSL seed as well?

(At the same time the OpenSSL wiki states [1] that "The situation has changed greatly, starting with OpenSSL 1.1.1 which completely rewrote RNG. The concerns [of fork unsafety] do not really apply any more".)
