Actually, I have. I read it again, now, to be sure. Nothing it says
suggests that what I did here is a "huge mistake". Nearest I get is
the suggestion that the output from the on-chip RNG is used as a source
for a hash function (like Yarrow). I feel that is overkill, and that
the output of the on-chip RNG is sufficient.
