bq. The generator is defined by the protocol

Ah, OK.  Then, if every client software has to implement a generator (if the 
language provides a different one), then why not have the protocol define a 
good generator?
But maybe that the protocol cannot be changed anymore...

> This is a RFE for implementing linear congruential generators:
> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_congruential_generator
> This type of random generator is often used in language runtimes (Borland C, 
> GCC, Delphi, VB and even Java). Preconfigured generators using the same 
> parameters as these languages would be convenient for reproducing the same 
> number sequences in Java.
