comment Why writing to /dev/random does not make parallel reading from /dev/random faster?
@Gilles, it still requires restarting gpg --gen-key, therefore re-endering data it interactively asks (or using more clever methods like specifying more command line parameters). Also CPU time generating the prime whould be lost (gpg can work a minute, print some +es and then request additional random data). And it gives "let's go back and go other route" feeling instead of "let's take a hammer and force it forward"...

comment How do I “cat and follow” a file?
@JosephR., 4. To use the time spent on typing && tar ... for downloading as well; 5. To be able to cancel unpacking without cancelling downloading easily.

@Schism, It's already shared on Github Gists. See the link in the edited question.

comment How do I “cat and follow” a file?
@JosephR., 1. To save up time by parallelizing; 2. To even up system load (avoiding/minimizing resource-intensive full throttle unpacking phase); 3. To avoid remembering about the "unpack" command later (or scheduling it) or typing chained command in the first place (when I'm not yet sure that I want to unpack it).
