> The use of /dev/urandom for random numbers is considered unfriendly to other systems
on a machine that might depend upon this source.
> The current use-case is for Journal serial numbers; the randomness of the C rand() call
should be good enough, but it requires a 64-bit number. Construct this using two 32-bit numbers.
