Shred Feature Request

From: Matthew Heys
Subject: Shred Feature Request
Date: Fri, 16 Jan 2009 13:55:01 -0000

We use Shred to wipe PC Hard Disks before sending them back at the end
of lease.
Would it be possible to add a switch to disable the (random) passes that
are done from /dev/urandom as these are massivly slower then the other
"Pattern" wipes. 
Something like -R for example and it will only use combinations of
0x000, 0xFFF, 0x555, 0xAAA, 0x249, 0x492, 0x6DB, 0x924, 0xB6D, 0xDB6,
0x111, 0x222, 0x333, 0x444, 0x666, 0x777, 0x888, 0x999, 0xBBB, 0xCCC,
0xDDD, 0xEEE, 0x1000, 0x1249, 0x1492, 0x16DB, 0x1924, 0x1B6D, 0x1DB6,
0x1FFF, 0x1111, 0x1222, 0x1333, 0x1444, 0x1555, 0x1666, 0x1777, 0x1888,
0x1999, 0x1AAA, 0x1BBB, 0x1CCC, 0x1DDD, 0x1EEE,
