The seed() discussion seems unnecessary.  StableRandom will need to have a method to set/get state
which can be used by any project that needs to get reproducible numbers from the module-level generator.

While this is an implementation detail, many generators have much smaller states than MT19937 
(a few uint64s). So this is easy enough to hard code where needed.
