Random numbers

Oops sorry, pressed the wrong button.  Trying again:

Is there any difference between the random number generator in the'
random' module and that in the 'whrandom' one?

What's the quality of the numbers generated?  I don't need the absolute
best, but hopefully it's at least better than a linear congruential
generator?

Is there a way to get a reproducible sequence of random numbers? 
seed(0,0,0) doesn't seem to have any effect.

Thanks,
