The "split" routine in the RandomGen seems to be a sore spot for some
people and is perceived to have few users (even as a percentage of
RandomGen users). I propose:
1) Making a class "SplittableGen":
class SplittableGen g where
split :: g -> (g, g)
2) (re)moving the "split" routine from the RandomGen class.
See ticket 4314  for the patch.
Period of discussion: Till October 8 (3.5 weeks, ending just over 1
week after ICFP)
