  Description     : module for generating random numbers using timer/schedule entropy

Crypt::Random::TESHA2 generates random numbers using entropy gathered from
timer / scheduler jitter, aka userspace voodoo entropy.

This can be used to generate non-pseudorandom data to seed a PRNG (e.g.
srand/rand, Math::Random::MT, etc.) or CSPRNG (e.g. AES-CTR or
Math::Random::ISAAC). You may use it directly or as part of a random source
module that first checks for O/S randomness sources.

Only Perl CORE modules are used, making this very portable. However, systems
must have a high resolution timer and support usleep from Time::HiRes.
