You know, there's something deeply ironic about using the low-entropy
word "entropy" for what should be a high-entropy password, then
reducing the entropy still further by posting to a public mailing list
with a clue to what it is.  Moreover, your confusion surrounds the
/entropy file, which is used by the system to store high-quality
entropy data for seeding purposes.
