Yes, but I think that may be not all.

Yes, will do, after FrOSCon though.

Similarily, I’ll review, rebase and repost it after FrOSCon.

What do you prefer, “better” entropy or smaller code? I’m
tending towards the latter for klibc at the moment, unless
you really want a global RNG-like function…

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
