Indeed, and with the minimal version of SUL required for UnixLib version
currently used in your program (at the moment v1.07).

The DRenderer, Iconv and CryptRandom module are not RMEnsured at the moment
because they are optional and not always used from UnixLib's point of view.
So if you need those (i.e. sound, iconv and /dev/(u)random), you need to
RMEnsure them somewhere.  I feel another Wiki entry coming up ;-)
