Semantically? It wouldn't. It just means you're leaving the thread
safety choices up to the user by providing the same guarantees that
just about every type in the standard and boost offer: Independent
instances can be used independently, shared instances need mutex.

Leave it up to the user whether they want thread-specific random,
mutexed random, task-queue-controlled random, whatever.
