Not in this case: I always get the same sequence with seed=0
(different for both implementation, but the same each time I run it.)
I got around it by installing pygsl and taking random numbers from
there instead of from numpy.
But I still find it strange to get two different sequences from two
implementation that claim to be the same algorithm...
