Hi Toby,

FYI: the Random123 license is just what is commonly referred to as the 
2-clause BSD license:
I don't see any problem with making a repo for it and using it for a 
PetscRandom implementation (IANAL).

Best regards,

It's developed by DE Shaw, but the license [2] looks to me like we should be able to make a repo for it and use it as a PetscRandom implementation.  Does anyone savvier than me want to look at the license and see if I'm missing something?
