For the new random number generators, if I want to share a single underlying
uniform random generator, I need to do like so:
  typedef boost::mt19937 rng_t;
  rng_t rng;
 boost::variate_generator<rng_t&, boost::normal_distribution<> > tn (rng,
boost::normal_distribution<> (0, sqrt (var)));
  boost::variate_generator<rng_t&, boost::pnseq_generator<1> > pn (rng,

That is, I need to say "rng_t&" for the 1st template param rather than
"rng_t". Is this correct?

The old rng lib passed the engine by ref in the constructor, but the new one
doesn't. Correct?
