 Priority:  major         |   Milestone:              
Component:  code          |     Version:  1.1 extended

 Currently, random values are generated using CL:RANDOM function.  This is
 far from cryptographically secure.  Spec refers to
 [http://rfc.net/rfc1750.html RFC 1750 Randomness Recommendations for
 Security]; these recommendations should be implemented, as a separate
 library, and this library should be used for generating random numbers.
