I have written two generators conforming to the
UniformRandomNumberGenerator specification:

1. One using George Marsaglia's multiply-with-carry algorithm,
(provisionally called MWCRand).

2. One using the uni altorithm described in "Numerical Methods
and Software", by Kahaner and Moler and Nash (provisionally called

If there is sufficient interest, I will be happy to contribute them
once they are polished up a little.

A question:

So far as I can see, all of the methods in random.hpp are defined
inline. I have initialization routines, however, that are pretty
large for an inline definition. I would prefer to put them in a .cpp
file that would have to be compiled and added to some library. Is
there a reason not to do this?
