Item10779: Core should not call
srand() to seed
Perl versions prior to 5.4 required srand() be called to seed the random number generator. Recent perl including those support by Foswiki automatically call srand() internally to seed the random generator algorithm using /dev/urandom or some other system source of randomness. It is recommended that srand() no longer be called.
