Honestly, I don't care about 2x differences here. How many milliseconds
do you save?
The PRNG in SciPy is fast enough for 99% of any use I can conceive. I
have yet to see a program speed-limited by the PRNG. Projects that are
speed limited by the PRNG could take the hassle to compile their own.
And if speed is that important, perhaps one should not use the Mersenne
Twister at all?
