I think, that's a very good decision.

There's an ``rsarefeuro'' (or something like this) around, which has
the same interface as rsaref but is developed in Europe so that any
European could write code which can be compiled with rsaref.

I think, the early pgp versions were released under GPL, so that it
should be possible to use this random-generator. Additionally there
is ``noise.sys'' (?) which collects random-data from MS-DOS.
No, I'm not volunteering. Besides that I don't have DOS/Windows, I
have and want to write the manual first.
