Comment (by rcurtin):

 I'll create a wrapper function in `random.hpp`: `void RandomSeed(const
 size_t seed)`, and this will set the random seed for each internal object
 which the random functions wrap.  Unfortunately the Boost Random library
 is particularly unwieldy and I haven't yet entirely figured out how to do

 Neil, what do you think of the --seed option?  We've violated the idea of
 "parameters only in main files" for --help and --info already (since they
 are special cases), so the question is whether or not --seed also
 qualifies as a special case.
