[SciPy-dev] Box-Muller considered slow.

I have done some benchmarking of the ziggurat algorithm vs the Box-Muller
algorithm in boost/random for computing gaussian random variables. The
ziggurat method was 6x faster. As scipy at this time uses the Box-Muller
method, I would like to propose a switch to the ziggurat method.
