No, I donät think the release whould wait for new randomness functions.
As you say, the design is not entirely obvious, and maybe that has to

Actually, there are two parts: (i) Rewrite current code to not use mpz
internally, and (ii) define a new public mpn interface. First part has
no interface design issues.
