so lets say you have apple (or someone) generate ipod skins. those
skins are coloured and patterned on the basis of random input. they
would maintain a general structure so as to be appealing.

then, lets say that that generation could further save a key/cert on
their ipod, which is then used.

in the spirit of anonymimity, lets link the keys to the ipod (not the
person). then, we can just use that.
