C API for writing custom random number generator that can be used as Random objects
I want to write custom random number generators (RNGs) that can be used as an alternative to a Random object.
Now custom RNGs with
#rand method can be used for that purpose, but there is the method call overhead in the current implementation because
#rand method is called through
I want C API for writing RNGs because all of the random number generator algorithms I want to write are originally written in C.
Nobu already created a pull-request for such purpose.

IMHO it's not nice to replace a nice Ruby-level API by a C API one.
Is there a benchmark of how much is it slower with
Also, will it still work when passing a custom object understanding
If so, there are two ways to dispatch, doesn't seem nice either API-wise.
