Related aside about reproducibility of random numbers:

scipy.stats.distributions.rvs does not guarantee yet the values of the
random numbers except for those that are directly produced by numpy.
In contrast to numpy.random, scipy's distributions don't have unit tests
for the specific values of the rvs, and the rvs code for specific
distribution could still be improved in some cases, I guess
