Yes, that was what I intended it for. But other software
has begun to pick up using arc4random() if found, so no
harm and (small) possible benefit.

If you don’t accept the mkstemp using it, no need to apply
this one either, though.

only measured by the success                       22:21⎜<mksh> it’s a
very thin line anyway… with some, you don’t know which side they’re on
