What else are random numbers used for? As I understand it, signing

IIRC signatures do include random nonces -- I think this is one of the
things I picked up from Paul's rants about our cryptography -- but I
could be wrong too.

AFAIR he was complaining about the very fact that we currently use signatures that don't, and proposed to change 'em =)
