That is, I've seen systems which hash the passphrase then use a PRF to expand the result --- I don't want to do that. I want to have more than 160 bits of entropy involved.More than 160 bits is a wide-ranging requirement. Entropy is a highly discussed unit of measure.

`And very often confused. While you do want maximum entropy, maximum`

`entropy is not sufficient. The sequence of the consecutive numbers 0`
