This subsection is based on the specification of SRFI-27 written by Sebastian Egner.

This SRFI provides access to a (pseudo) random number generator; for
Guile’s built-in random number facilities, which SRFI-27 is implemented
upon, See Random. With SRFI-27, random numbers are obtained from a
*random source*, which encapsulates a random number generation
algorithm and its state.
