To be fair, if the random module depends that badly on getting
entropy from the mouse it isn't much good for many of our users
who may not even have a mouse, keyboard or console. (Even when
using X, personally I use the mouse as little as possible. On some
of our servers the console is rarely used).

I think the yarrow stuff is probably somewhat more roubust than
requiring the mouse - as long as there is some source of entropy.
What other sources does the random device currently use?
