It's used relatively deep in the C code. The last time I considered it, I came
to the conclusion that it would probably be easier and certainly more satisfying
to simply port the algorithms to Python than to spend time refactoring it to use
a better PRNG.

that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had
an underlying truth."
