Surprise! Indeed i do see your name only once in the commits!
So now, what to do? What is due? Congratulations, or even an
excuse? I had a very false impression indeed. Excuse this miss
of mine, please.

Then you lead me by more than a decade in respect to "following"
the project. (I only saw, otherwise offline, the headers and
libraries fly by.) (And in my granted lengthy text i thought
about changing my ARC4 thing to ChaCha, and not feed the bytes of
the pool as such, but run a Blake2 digest on top of it, and feed
the output of that. For now, however, this ARC4 PRNG, and then
also well seeded, is really good enough for my purpose(s).)
