I am trying to understand atleast to some level of detail about how random
partitioner works. With the text I have seen on the website I am not able to
clearly understand. Is there a place where it's described with an example,
for eg how nodes are assigned random tokens? Is the range picked randomly
and assigned to nodes in circular fashion, for eg: hash ABC to FGH goes to
node A and then hash IJKLM-OPQR goes to node B?
