Because boost::random::uniform_01 takes its engine argument by value (and
cannot use a reference type), I use the
boost::random::detail::pass_through_engine wrapper to ensure re-use of the
same engine for different generators. That does provide operator().
Perhaps there's scope for some unification here.
