I committed something to do that, in trunk bzr 109833 and

One thing that wasn't discussed was how to set the
seed, for people who want to do debugging and who want
repeatable random sequences.  Trunk bzr 109833 does that by letting
one execute (random "STRING"), where the contents of the string
determine the seed.  If this doesn't seem to be a good idea,
I'll volunteer to rip it out, or change it, or whatever.
