That's the goal, but I'm lost as how to constantly generate high amounts
of quality entropy on low-throughput consumer-grade hardware in a timely
fashion.  An Entropy Key might help (still need to buy and try out one
of those things), but requiring or bundling one of those raises the
overall investment for FBX hardware significantly (it's 1/3 the price of
a DreamPlug).

Any suggestions?
