    Description

      This is a wish for an instance create method for RandomSource:

      public RestorableUniformRandomProvider create() {
          return create(this);
      }
      
      public RestorableUniformRandomProvider create(Object seed,
                                                    Object... data) {
          return create(this, seed, data);
      }
      

      It is syntactic sugar to avoid typing the use of the static factory method and repeating RandomSource in close succession:

      RandomSource.create(RandomSource.MT);
      RandomSource.create(RandomSource.MT, 12345L);
      

      Becomes:

      RandomSource.MT.create();
      RandomSource.MT.create(12345L);
      

      It would make the use of the static factory method redundant, which could be deprecated.

      Opinions on this?
