You could use math.random()/math.randomseed() instead. This is a
very fast PRNG and uses all bits of the floating-point seed.
Convert the upper bits of the seed values with tonumber(x/2^12) to
FP values. Convert the lower bits with tonumber(x%2^52). Then use
FP multiplies and FP adds to mix them together.

It's on my TODO list. Not sure when I'll get around to it.
