Hi Bruce,
	This is smething I never understood. Clearly randoms cause(d)
fragmentation, however if multiple requests for a 2^28 are all served out of
the same 2^32, before a new one is started (per keyserver), then requested
randoms will actually help to mop up existing fragmented blocks more often
than not.  Hence apart from randoms there should never be more than 4
fragmented 2^32 blocks per keyserver.

	Rgds,

		Richard.
