Not high-handed. Logical. The difference between /dev/random and /dev/urandom
was that /dev/random could block IO if it didn't have enough entropy


in systems where /dev/random is separate simply abusing it by cat /dev/random >/dev/null make all other programs using it very very slow. as unix is a multiuser system and /dev/random is readable for all - it wasn't very good.
