It just occurred to me that the registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Cryptography\RNG\Seed (type
REG_BINARY) contains the latest seeded value from everything that
CryptoAPI takes into account when generating its random seed.
CryptoAPI permutes it with RC4 to come up with a pseudo-random stream,
but I wonder if it might make sense to try to make use of it the same
way OpenSSL on UNIX uses /dev/urandom?

Just a thought.
