Talking to Berker on I noticed that docs for random.Random are currently embedded in the module preamble text for 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.

I pushed Matthias's change. Thanks Matthias!

I am not sure that it implements exactly what Nick asked. Reopen the issue if it is not the case.
