 Replying to [comment:1 nacin]:
 > We already have wp_generate_password(). The one on wordpress.org uses
 /dev/urandom/ which cannot be guaranteed to exist. If we can reach the
 API, it would be better to use it.

 So does this technically mean, that if /dev/urandom is available on the
 local system, the remote request would not be necessary at all?
