That agrees with assumptions we're making for mod_jserv too.

Since we're using the pseudorandom number generator within the authentication
algorithm (between the server and the servlet engine), the AJPv2 protocol
spec (which affects mod_jserv) advises the implementor to assume 15 bits
from a pseudorandom number generator unless they *know* they have more.

(Details are at java.apache.org.)
