[Numpy-discussion] additions to random: innovative names vs. algorithm specification

Rather than just looking for a new name (e.g., znormal),
would it not be better to decide on a syntax for specifying
PRNG algorithms?  (E.g., MATLAB takes such an
approach: http://www.mathworks.com/access/helpdesk/help/techdoc/math/brt5wsv.html)

Wouldn't this meet the need for replicability with much greater generality?
