I'm talking about something that you can set up yourself, in my case
OpenWRT based. But I don't think keeping the RNG state in some file
solves the issue completely. At least in 90% of all cases I
power-cycle the device to reboot and don't do a normal shutdown (because
the device is hung or I'm directing someone per telephone to press a
reset button). So normal shutdown is probably not the most-often used
use-case :-)

And I think bettercrypto *should* at least think about the issue of 
connecting securely to such a device.
