Yes, it would be great to include some additional PRNGs as part of [math]. 
  If you have (unencumbered) robust implementations with good performance 
or are interested in developing them, I think this would make a good 
addition to [math].  The current implementation of the RandomData 
interface supports pluggable generators for the secure methods (using the 
SecureRandom support for that) and also encapsulates the getRandom() 
method that is used everywhere to get a PRNG, so it would be easy to plug 
in alternative PRNGs.
