Rationale

The methods for generating and evaluating deterministic and non-deterministic random numbers differ radically. Furthermore, due to the inherent deterministic design of present-day computers, it is often difficult to implement non-deterministic random number generation facilities. Thus, the random number library is split into separate header files, mirroring the two different application domains.
