 Yes, it sound good, but is it? I've been burned more than once by
developing and testing a feature for something, thinking all was good and
then remarkably stuff did not work in the real world. Ah, another seed
would have caught this bug. I think some fuzzy testing is good, and you
said it yourself (and the advice), the test has to be re-producible.
Marrying the two is not impossible, but needs some thought, design and some
more code.
