that it provides all of the state and configuration information
needed to do the transforms.

There is no reason why random.c's usage of the crypto-API cannot be
done cleanly and efficiently such that it is both faster and resulting
in smaller code size than what random.c uses now. All of this _WITHOUT_
bypassing and compromising the well designed crypto API interfaces to these
