Thanks, Werner. I read that, but I was particularly interested in how to get
GnuPG work with haveged.
So, I guess it would not be possible for an interested user to have GnuPG work
with haveged by using configuration files or load instructions (similar to egd)
and a strong dedication.
It does require to be implemented first in GnuPG/libgcrypt by modifying
source code, doesn't it? The latter would be certainly out of my reach, far off
the shore in (the Atlantic) C :)
If it were at all feasible/possible to do it by using the approach mentioned
first I would have given it a try, and published a howto in the wiki.
