Several hackers disagreed to support them.
Yea. I certainly disagree with the patch in it's current state because it copies the same 15 lines several times with a two word difference. Independent of whether we want those options, I don't think that's going to fly. > OTOH, we've almost reached the consensus that supporting gaussian > and exponential options in \setrandom.

Sounds like a good plan.
