But that's really the point. If you want strong random data, that data
should have high entropy. But that entropy needs to come from
somewhere -- i.e., your system.
What I'd find more interesting is why you (Werner) chose quality level
1. What do these levels do? Is 2 full entropy, and 0 just urandom?
