Chaotic, yes, but random?  Hmmmmm....

Without sounding too Taoist/quantum, given the interrelationships 
between natural patterns I sometimes wonder if randomness is a purely 
intellectual construct, unrelated to the natural world.

Nonetheless, I'm sure that approaching that ideal is useful for human 
purposes.  Good work in making it available to Rev folks.
