> This issue is used to track investigation on finding a weighted sampler without using
internal reservoir. 
> At present, the SimpleRandomSample has implemented a good acceptance-rejection sampling
algo on probability random sampling. The weighted sampler could utilize the simple random
sample with slight modification.
> One slight modification is:  the present simple random sample generates a uniform random
number lies between (0, 1) as the random variable to accept or reject an item. The weighted
sample may generate this random variable based on the item's weight and this random number
still lies between (0, 1) and each item's random variable remain independent between each
> Need further think and experiment the correctness of this solution and how to implement
it in an effective way.
