numpy CAPI :: use numpy's random number generator in a ufunc

Hi folks,
I currently have a project that requires randomness in a ufunc. In order to keep the ufuncs as reproducible as possible I would like to use numpy's random number generator for that; basically because setting the seed will be more intuitive this way.
However I cannot find the documentation of the numpy.random CAPI (does it have one?). How would one do that?
Cheers,

Hi Daniel. Usually one would use python, something like `rng = np.random.Generator(np.random.PCG64(seed)); a = rng.uniform(10, size=(3, 4))` to get a 3 by 4 array of uniform random numbers in the range of 0 to 10. Is there a reason you need to do this from C?
