This package contains code for generating high quality random numbers that
follow either a uniform or normal distribution. The generated numbers are
suitable for use in statistical applications.
The uniform PRNG uses Marsaglia's MWC256 (also known as MWC8222)
multiply-with-carry generator, which has a period of 2^8222 and fares well in
tests of randomness. It is also extremely fast, between 2 and 3 times faster
than the Mersenne Twister.
Compared to the mersenne-random package, this package has a more convenient
API, is faster, and supports more statistical distributions.

[#]# Changes in
* Low level functions for acquiring random data for initialization
of PRGN state is moved to `System.Random.MWC.SeedSource` module
* Ensure that carry is always correct when restoring PRNG state from
seed. Only affects users who create 258 element seed manually.
