What the hell are you talking about? These are not real arguments or
technical points, for the nth time, and piping /dev/random through
Babelfish and sending it to sl4 does not help the signal-to-noise ratio.

If there are compelling reasons for making these assertions -- and
intuition is not a compelling reason -- then please remember to attach
them next time. Throw us a bone here; few of us can hope to share your
natural insight into these matters.
