Do you mean to avoid the new function and not have the ability
to set the same seed after a restart, or to move this functionality
somewhere else?

If the latter, I checked the srp functions in gnutls and couldn't
find one that could be modified in a way to include this feature.

I have also taken a look at OpenSSL; it provides a way for programs
to set the seed.
