No python Crypto Random in EL6

So, one of my python packages that I'd like to see in EPEL6 (StarCluster) 
requires python-ssh.  python-ssh does not build on EL6 because the 
python-crypto in RHEL6 (2.0) is too old and doesn't provide Crypto/Random (see 

I'm wondering what else might be done to get around this.  Some options may be:

- Package up Crypto/Random somehow
- port python-ssh to some other random number generator

Any other ideas?  Suggestions welcome.
