    * I highly recommend working with Paul Houle [http://www.honeylocust.com/RngPack/] to
get these random number generators integrated into the math library. He has stated to me in
the past that he is willing to relicense them under the Apache license. As well I beleive
that with the BSD being compatable with Apache licensing, there would be little stopping us
from integrating them ourselves as a derivative work. - Mark Diggory

consensus about what Commons-Math is supposed to be for.  Should it include discipline-specific
algorithms that do not overlap core numerical mathematical areas?  Maybe, but we should discuss
it. -- AlChou
