+This package contains an implementation of a high-quality splittable
+pseudorandom number generator. The generator is based on a
+cryptographic hash function built on top of the ThreeFish block
+cipher. See the paper Splittable Pseudorandom Number Generators
+Using Cryptographic Hashing by Claessen, Pałka for details and the
+rationale of the design.
