  Description     : module providing strong randomness for seeding

Crypt::Random::Seed provides a simple mechanism to get strong randomness. The
main purpose of this module is to provide a simple way to generate a seed for
a PRNG such as Math::Random::ISAAC, for use in cryptographic key generation,
or as the seed for an upstream module such as Bytes::Random::Secure. Flags
for requiring non-blocking sources are allowed, as well as a very simple
method for plugging in a source.
