Comment (by nslagle):

 Frankly, this isn't really a bug in MLPack, unless our wrappers fail to
 provide the means to change the seed value.  (In my code, I've accessed
 boost::random objects directly where necessary.)

 From what I understand, one can modify the seed value as easily as


 on the current generator object.  So long as random.hpp provides the means
 to do this, let the author of the machine learning method decide the
 importance of modifying the seed by placing a hook in his/her/its code.
