It creates and returns a vector, so if you ask it to give you a billion
items, it's going to require north of 8 gigabytes of memory. This should not
come as a surprise, I'd hope :-) Assuming that's not what you actually
want, you should look at other entry points in the API, which you can use to
generate a single value at a time in constant space.
