There's an implementation of Fortuna, which is a computationally secure
PRNG, in PyCrypto:
https://github.com/dlitz/pycrypto/tree/master/lib/Crypto/Random/Fortuna

Unfortunately, gathering entropy is rather non-generic; otherwise decentish
operating systems get this wrong. The various BSDs' source is probably the
best place to start poking around, if you really want.
