Comment (by jcline3):

 The default if nothing is specified should probably be to use the system
 time. It's what most people would expect, I should think.

 Having a --seed option would also be nice for debugging purposes, at
 least. If we do have one, it makes more sense I think to do it the first
 way with the `PARAM_INT("seed", ...)` in random.hpp, unless that goes
 against what we had decided for CLI stuff.
