New submission from Justin Lebar <starwiz at gmail.com>:
Many programmers are used to languages where the RNG is deterministic unless it's explicitly seeded. This does not appear to be the case in Python.
The documentation for random should indicate that Random objects are seeded on construction, and that the global random object is seeded when the random package is first imported.
