        uniform generator and inverse-cumulative Gaussian method.

        \note At this time, generation of the underlying uniform
              sequence is eager, while its transformation into
              Gaussian variates is lazy.  Further optimization might
              be possible by using the Mersenne twister directly
              instead of a RandomSequenceGenerator; however, it is not
              clear how much of a difference this would make when
              compared to the inverse-cumulative Gaussian calculation.
