# create_element_size()
# This will open a "<name>_data" file for writing and write
# <size> MB of urandom (/dev/urandom) "stuff" into the file.
# A bst import element file is then created: <name>.bst
# Args:
# name: (str) of the element name (e.g. target.bst)
# path: (str) pathway to the project/elements directory
# dependencies: A list of strings (can also be an empty list)
# size: (int) size of the element in bytes
# Returns:
# Nothing (creates a .bst file of specified size)

# Simplest case: We want this file (of specified size) to just
# be an import element.
