Just a clarification requested.  Nick Cox just seemed to indicate that to
replicate using seed one needs to also reference time.  Have I
misunderstood?  Or is time an alternative way to obtain a seed when one
does not care what it is?  I guess I just want to assure that setting seed
*sets* the seed so that it replicates any other run with the same seed,
regardless of the time.

Thanks a bunch.
Sam
