just a suggestion --

next time the core RNG is changed, I think it would be useful to have
an
-oldrandom switch.  It is common practice in simulation projects to
depend
on the fact that your random numbers will come out the same if you use
the same seed.  In bumping to 2.3 with the new Mersenne algorithm, I
have no easy way of duplicating my old results.
