Subject: [boost] [random] Speed up binomial and poisson distributions
From: Stephan (stschiff80_at_[hidden])

I was wondering why the binomial distribution still isn't optimized
for speed. If I look into the GSL as a comparison, they use much
smarter and faster algorithms. As is, the bosst::random distributions
are not usable for computational purposes to me, which is a pity since
I very much like the approach using variate_generators and stuff...

I would be happy to contribute some faster code, but I don't know how
exactly I should proceed for that... should I contact the maintainer
