>> Hello swift evolution, I would like to propose a unified approach to `random()` in Swift. I have a simple implementation here https://gist.github.com/Azoy/5d294148c8b97d20b96ee64f434bb4f5 <https://gist.github.com/Azoy/5d294148c8b97d20b96ee64f434bb4f5>. This implementation is a simple wrapper over existing random functions so existing code bases will not be affected. Also, this approach introduces a new random feature for Linux users that give them access to upper bounds, as well as a lower bound for both Glibc and Darwin users. This change would be implemented within Foundation.
>> I believe this simple change could have a very positive impact on new developers learning Swift and experienced developers being able to write single random declarations.
>> I’d like to hear about your ideas on this proposal, or any implementation changes if need be.
