Talking to Berker on http://psf.upfronthosting.co.za/roundup/meta/issue644 I noticed that docs for random.Random are currently embedded in the module preamble text for https://docs.python.org/3/library/random.html and hence really easy to miss.

It would be good if they were broken out into a proper Sphix class directive so that the fact you can create your own dedicated pseudorandom number generators for specific purposes is easier to see on a quick scan of the docs.

Thanks, I'll add a separate entry for the random.Random() class.
