In looking through the doc on the random module I came across
random.triangular(low, high, mode)
Return a random floating point number N such that low <= N <= high and
with the specified mode between those bounds. The low and high bounds
default to zero and one. The mode argument defaults to the midpoint
between the bounds, giving a symmetric distribution.
New in version 2.6.
I fooled around with it a bit and wrote this rough demo:
The skewing and centering possible by varying the mode, are obvious,
but how is random.trangular() actually used?
