cheap_random

**CheapRandom** is a set of tools for pseudo random number generation from arbitrary data. The properties of the **CheapRandom seed** make convenient random number generation possible -- useful for easily repeatable software testing. The **CheapRandom algorithm** is information conserving and generally appears to produce lower chi-squared statistics than **Kernel::rand** i.e. it appears to be more random. The **CheapRandom algorithm**, an original work by Bardi Einarsson, has been in use for 6 years.
