[SciPy-User] random points within an ellipse

Hi,

For a project, I need to create sets of random coordinates within a 2d
domain.  To start, I have been creating random x and y coordinates, which
has worked very nicely.  However, I would like to start doing some fancier
domains like ellipses and crescents.  Does anybody know of any useful tricks
for doing this?

Thanks,
Ben Root
