We don't have any "enhanced" scipy.random, so I think we can leave the
scipy_core version as scipy.random. I think that anything that might fit into
there in full scipy will either deserve its own subpackage (scipy.mcmc,
scipy.aesprng) or will fit comfortably into scipy.stats. We only moved it under
scipy.basic because it was an "orphan" module rather than a package. That's no
longer a problem.
