I guess, Antoine wanted to point out this:

"Changed in version 2.3: MersenneTwister replaced Wichmann-Hill as the
default generator."

But as the paragraph points out Python did provide non default WichmanHill
class for generating repeatable sequences with older python.

My brief reading on this topic, does suggest that 'repeatability' is
an important requirement for any PRNG.
