I appreciate that you needed to write a tool like this for the thesis;
for general usage I'd strongly urge everyone to use a general-purpose
cryptographic library that doesn't promise to use a particular
technology.  We really want the ability to disable a
broken/suspicious/problematic random number source by only patching a
few cryptograhic libraries, without having to individually modify
various applications.
