Implements the ISAAC and ISAAC-64 random number generators.
ISAAC stands for "Indirection, Shift, Accumulate, Add, and Count" which are the principal bitwise operations employed. It is the most advanced of a series of array based random number generator designed by Robert Jenkins in 1996[^1][^2].
ISAAC is notably fast and produces excellent quality random numbers for non-cryptographic applications.

no_std compatible. It does not require any functionality
outside of the
core lib, thus there are no features to configure.
serde1 feature includes implementations of
for the included RNGs.
