We can't really place any reliance on that, though, because more and more,
neon is being built as an independent library, for use by more than just
subversion. If there is a pressing need to stop subversion's use of neon
depleting /dev/random, then neon's API needs to have a way for subversion to
tell it that crypto-strength random numbers are not required.
